Cinderella Pact




Synopsis (from Amazon):  When Nola Devlin is turned down for her dream job because she's overweight, she decides to become thin-or, at least, pretend to be. The alter ego she creates-the thin, British, hip, and did we mention thin Belinda Apple-is a smashing success who is offered movie proposals, national television appearances and even dates...though no one's met her in person, of course.

Then Nola takes Belinda a bit too far, and is forced to join "The Cinderella Pact" and drop the pounds. As the weight comes off, however, Nola's problems begin to mount.



One (or more) Sentence Summary: OMG - just found out that Cinderella Pact was made into a Lifetime movie - Lying to be Perfect.  I MUST find it and watch!  I found Cinderella Pact to be a great chick-lit book with real guts.  There are SO many of us out there struggling with being over weight.  I have blamed my extra pounds from pregnancies, however, given my three kids are 14 and 13 (twins), I think that excuse is about 13 years too old and over used!  However, the book is not just about weight loss and the three different approaches the ladies take, it is a great love story/chick lit times 3.  

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  I most certain would.  Sarah has a ton of books that I can't wait to go read.  In fact I have Kindred Spirits, that got buried on the back of the bookshelf and I re-discovered (just like Cinderella Pact) when we moved!


It's also my fourteenth novel, but my first for young adults after writing mysteries and stand alones, one of which, THE CINDERELLA PACT, became the Lifetime Movie - LYING TO BE PERFECT. Of all these, SMART GIRLS has been my favorite to write because not only was I a "smart girl," but so were my daughter and her friends who, like me, grew tired of playing second fiddle. I figured the time had come for our kind to receive the kudos, the attention and the boys. The bad girls had hogged center stage long enough.

Today, I live in Vermont with my husband, a lawyer, and son, Sam, an upcoming high school junior. My daughter, Anna, is a senior at Bryn Mawr College where there are A LOT of smart girls. Also, there's Fred, my five-year-old basset hound and between you and me, the love of my life.
