As you might have seen from the graphic on the Home page, another honor came in this week: a starred review from Booklist!
I can't describe how it feels to work so hard on this story--to write it and rethink it and rewrite it again and again--and get helpful input from first readers and my wonderful agent Sara Megibow and my equally wonderful editor Deb Werksman and her Sourcebooks team and rewrite it another couple of times until finally it makes it into the hands of outside readers, and then have at least some of them appreciate it enough to write such lovely things.
My first book baby has flown into some loving hands!
Here's a snippet from the review (or you can read the full review here):
"It is lovely to see two people who have issues with body size discover that the other’s perceptions can be different than expected while they try to navigate a relationship they never thought could happen. Readers of this heartfelt debut will hope for more from Moher."
