Summary
"The newest heartwarming novel from the New York Times bestselling author tells the story of two friends who make a promise to face their deepest hopes and greatest fears by agreeing to stop waiting to lose weight and start living now. Marley, Georgia, and Emerson met at fat camp as teens, and they never would have survived it without each other. They bonded against the disapproval of their family and friends by loving each other for who they were and dreaming together of when things would be better--something they formalized by writing up a list of all the things they'd do once they lost the weight... Now, seventeen years later, Emerson is morbidly obese and on her death bed from the strain of her weight on her heart. She calls Marley and Georgia to her side one last time and makes them promise her to stop waiting to live, and do the list now"--
Summary
"New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins is beloved for her heartfelt novels filled with humor and wisdom. Now, in her newest novel, Good Luck with That, she tackles an issue every woman deals with: body image and self-acceptance. Emerson, Georgia and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson tragically passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: to conquer the fears they still carry as adults. For each of them, that means something different. For Marley, it is coming to terms with the survivor's guilt she has carried around since her twin sister's death, which has left her blind to the real chance for romance in her life. For Georgia, it is about learning to stop trying to live up to her mother's and brother's ridiculous standards, and learning to accept the love her ex-husband has tried to give her. But as Marley and Georgia grow stronger, the real meaning of Emerson's dying wish becomes truly clear: more than anything, shewanted her friends to love themselves. A novel of compassion and insight, Good Luck with That tells the story of two women who learn to embrace themselves just the way they are."--
