Review: Huge by Sasha Paley
Publication: May 2007
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Description from goodreads:
April's been saving all year to afford Wellness Canyon (aka Fat Camp) and she can't wait to start losing weight. Wil's wealthy health-nut parents are forcing her to go to the camp, but Wil is determined to get revenge by gaining weight. They're supposed to work together to meet their weight-loss goals. But Wil's leading April on "hikes" to 7-Eleven, April's relentless pep is driving Wil to hit her secret stash of Godiva, and soon they're both crushing on the same guy. With April as committed to the cause as Wil is determined to undermine the system, this summer's going to be about more than just counting calories....
I first wanted to read this book because of the ABC Family show that premiered last summer and thought I would give the book a go. The book is almost nothing like the show, so don't read this if that's what you want.
Amber and Will are both pretty selfish in my opinion, they only care about personal gains. So I wasn't sure who I was rooting for. They both had qualities I really hate.
The guy they like is a total doosh, I wanted him to get a stick in the gut or something, I don't know. I was glad he got what was coming.
Overall this was an easy read but the characters were not my favorite. 3/5
