B as in Beauty by Alberto Ferreras

I was pleasantly surprised by B as in Beauty by Alberto Ferreras. The book is about a woman named Beauty who is not happy with her body because according to social standards she is considered overweight. Her lack of self-esteem follows into her career past as well as she continues to work in a position she is not happy with. Beauty gets introduced to a new type of job - not an escort, but more of a companionship type of job. This new job gives her a new positive outlook on life.

I loved Beauty's wit and I could completely understand where she was coming from. Ferreras really captured the mind of an overweight woman. I would read a line of the book and think, wow, that's so true or that just described my life. I can't believe a guy wrote this book! It's so nice when you truly connect with a character in the book.

What I liked the most about this is that the author didn't make Beauty conform to the world's standard of being ultra thin. Instead he made Beauty like herself for who she was and how to love her body. It's a lesson I think a lot of us need to learn.

We have 5 copies of B as in Beauty to giveaway to a reader in the US/Canadian area. To enter for a chance to win a copy of this great book just leave a comment on this post before August 6, 2009.
