Publisher's Summary

Cannie Shapiro never wanted to be famous. The smart, sharp, plus-sized pop culture reporter was perfectly content writing about other people's lives on the pages of the Philadelphia Examiner. But the day she opens up a national women's magazine to find out that her ex-boyfriend has been chronicling their ex-sex life is the day her life changes forever. Loving a larger woman is an act of courage in our world, Bruce has written. And Cannie - who never knew that Bruce saw her as a larger woman or thought that loving her was act of courage - is plunged into misery, and into the most amazing year of her life.
Radiant with wit, bursting with surprises, and written with bite and bittersweet humor, Jennifer Weiner reaches beyond Cannie's story and into the heart of every woman. Gut-level real and laugh-out-loud funny, Good in Bed celebrates the courage of the human spirit and features an unbelievably funny cast of supporting characters, the strangest dog you'll ever encounter, and a heroine you'll never forget.

A Genuine Surprise

This was not at all what I expected but was a real treat. She is someone you can easily relate to and you get caught up so readily in her challenges.

Finally! A Plus-Size Happy Ending!

I love this book. A "normal" woman, not a stick figure with Farrah Fawcett hair and perfect teeth, gets the good guy! You can really put yourself in the shoes of this woman as her life takes unplanned turns. She DOES have a life. Most authors, and Hollywood, want us to think that if you are larger than a size 4, you never get the opportunity to have a life, let alone a HAPPY life or even a LOVE life.

This book proves them all wrong. Overweight women are not parriahs. They are people who love and are loved. They are mothers, daughters, friends, lovers. Thank you for finally putting that into print for the whole world to see!
