There's a beautiful, funny, bright woman behind all Jemima's fat, and not even she has an inkling how wonderful she can be. When an Internet liaison spurs her to dive headlong into diet and exercise, Jemima finds doors open to her as if by magic. Barbara Rosenblat is the perfect choice for this first-person tale. Her compassion and understanding for Jemima and her dreams bring the book's heroine to fully dimensional life. Rosenblat's timing, impeccable as always, works equally well in both comic and tragic sequences. Of particular note is her uncanny ability to switch effortlessly between British and American accents when Jemima travels to California. From her performance, no one could ever tell which is Rosenblat's native speech. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
