“Audacious and gutsy and heartbreaking — Dietland completely blew me away.” — Jennifer Weiner

The diet revolution is here. And it’s armed.
 
Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed, because when you’re fat, to be noticed is to be judged. With her job answering fan mail for a teen magazine, she is biding her time until her weight-loss surgery. But when a mysterious woman in colorful tights and combat boots begins following her, Plum falls down a rabbit hole into the world of Calliope House — an underground community of women who reject society’s rules — and is forced to confront the real costs of becoming “beautiful.” At the same time, a guerilla group begins terrorizing a world that mistreats women, and Plum becomes entangled in a sinister plot. The consequences are explosive.

“A giddy revenge fantasy that will shake up your thinking and burrow under your skin” (Entertainment Weekly), Dietland takes on the beauty industry, gender inequality, and our weight-loss obsession — with fists flying.

    This is such an incredibly well written and detailed story. You go through Plum's thoughts and feelings, despair and triumphs. It was amazing!

    In addition to being a witty and thoughtful adventure, this book was consciousness-raising for me. I'll never look at myself or other women, no matter their size, the same again. And that's a good thing! I hated that it came to an end. Wish I could go live with Plum and all her friends forever!
  • A novel about transformation

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and Plum, the protagonist of Dietland, dispenses advice to teens in the guise of a fashion editor and retreats from the barrage of real-world mockery and fat-shaming into an imaginary, post-weight-loss surgery future, until a woman who's been stalking her leaves her a book and introduces her to the daughter of a disgraced diet plan guru and a whole new plan. The satire is biting and the story nonstop, and Plum is a heroine for every woman. Loved it.
