What if one resume was submitted by two different people? What if one person was overweight and unfashionable, and the other a glamorous model? Which applicant would be chosen for the job? Those who are fans of Jennifer Crusie's Bet Me, will enjoy Sarah Stromeyer's Cinderella Pact. Like the author herself, Nola Devlin, the main character has always struggled with her weight. After years of dieting, Nola can locate every Weight Watchers meeting in town and she's got her "drop-out" card to prove it. After an especially rude encounter with a restaurant manager, however, Nolan and her three friends create a "Cinderella Pact" and vow to lose weight once and for all. As Nola struggles through her new exercise regime, she also hides a secret. At her job as a magazine editor, she's been quietly writing an advice column under the name Belinda Apple. Belinda is everything she isn’t--thin, glamorous and above all, British. Unfortunately, Nola’s secret is about to be discovered, and she will have to figure out how she can remain true to herself. (Juliette S.)
