Size Eight in a Size Zero World by Meredith Cagen

sizeReviewed by Julie Moderson

Meredith Cagen lives in Manhattan in the Upper East Side. She lives with her husband and two children. She is not a size zero and is a very pretty brunette. I believe this is her first novel and I just love it.

Lindsey Chandler is a 32-year-old New York working wife and mother. She thinks that she has old-fashioned values but I think she doesn’t. She is married to Grant, who is a man who considers his wife to be his personal property and servant. Grant is a mean hateful person who seems to take pride in hurting Lindsey. She has two wonderful children who deserve to have a father in their life. Grant has never gone to any events at his children’s school or their classes.

From the beginning of the book you see that Lindsay has friends who are very wealthy and she has a great lifestyle but she feels that something is missing. Lindsay forms an unexpected friendship with a man who lives upstairs. She has never slept with anyone other than Grant and the man upstairs changes that. He talks to Lindsey about getting in better shape, so she loses weight, and she changes her clothes to appeal to him. He is always out with models that wear a size zero and Lindsay wears a size eight. She tries to change to make
him love her. She wants the happily ever after life but does she end up with it?

This is a great book about women and our feelings about who we are and what we are worth.
