What: Cranberry Meeting "The Next Big Thing" by Johanna Edwards

When: January 20,[masked]:00 PM

Crazy Mocha
1185 Freedom Road
Cranberry Township, PA 16066

To kick off the New Year, we'll meet to discuss "The Next Big Thing" by Johanna Edwards.

We'll return again to the new Crazy Mocha on Freedom Road in Cranberry---we usually have the place to ourselves for the most part!

A bit about the book...


In this funny, poignant debut, a plus-size heroine becomes a reality TV show contestant and discovers she's already beautiful enough to be the next big thing.

Kat Larson figured she had nothing to lose by becoming a contestant on the new reality show From Fat to Fabulous-except maybe a few dozen pounds. Then she'd finally be able to arrange a face-to-face meeting with Nick, the British hunk she met online, who still thinks she's a size four. She'd finally be confident and graceful and thin-and there's that big cash prize, too, to pay for all those slinky new clothes she'd need. She'd finally have the perfect life.

"Edwards addresses image issues with wit and of Jennifer Weiner's realistic female protagonists will find a new favorite here."

Boston Globe
"Engaging, better-than-average chick lit. Edwards is good where it counts."

New York Post
"Required reading."

Us Weekly
"Hot book pick."
