Publisher's Summary

Olivia Morten is perfect. Maybe she's constantly hungry, but her body is to die for. Maybe her high-flying publicist job has taken over her life, but her clients are LA's hottest celebrities. Maybe her husband is never around, but he is a drop-dead-gorgeous doctor. And maybe her past harbors an incredibly embarrassing secret, but no one remembers high school...right?

When Ben Dunn, Olivia's high school archnemesis - and onetime crush - suddenly resurfaces, all of her hard-won perfection begins to unravel. As she finds herself dredging up long-suppressed memories, she is forced to confront the most painful truth of all: Sometimes who we become isn't who we really are.

Adult novel stuck in the land of YA characters

Just about every character that populates The F Word suffers from arrested development; heck, even the southern California culture in which the story is set is childish, needy and cranky when hungry (which is pretty much all the time).

It's well written, mostly engaging and the reader does a really good job but ultimately, The F Word is that YA story about a fat girl transformed we've heard over and over.

Loved the character's dynamics!

Loved the story; the narrator did great even changing voices for different characters. Got to put this on your list!
