Join us on the first Monday of each month to discuss a book selected by the group. This month we will be discussing The Cinderella Pact by Sarah Strohmeyer. This modern Cinderella story features a smart, funny, full-figured single woman in her thirties. 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 THIN Belinda Apple - is a smashing success who is offered movie proposals, 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. Everyone is welcome to come, listen and share. Bring your lunch, if you wish. Dessert and beverages are provided by the participants or the Friends of the Library. Copies of each title are available to borrow from the library.
