Book Review: Plus by Veronica Chambers
This is not a deep novel. It's super cute and fun and lighthearted. I was hoping for a more weighty (no pun intended) read. I was disappointed that Bee became heavier and had been naturally slim before. I felt like a girl who had struggled with weight and criticism because of her size would be a much more realistic and endearing character.
But, this is a perfect beach read. It's summery and sorta makes you think, but not so hard that your brain cells are all that taxed. I was hoping to choose this read for the Chick Lit Book Club, but it's a little too light for my girls. They're used to dealing with some serious subject matter. This is a good one for my free reading shelf at the back of the room. And, the cover is adorable. I love it.
