    Light funny and relatable Imagine Mean Girls comes to Western Sydney and meets Clueless except the storyline is about a young Armenian girl who wants to win the man of her dreams by losing weight The book is easy to read and riddled with moments of laughter and other moments of truth that come across in a kind fashion I absolutely loved the idea of using food to describe everything and was uite hungry while reading the

I really wanted to love this because I like the idea of the Sweatshop program and it s a book that s super diverse due to being set in Western Sydney The protagonist is Armenian Australian and the part I read had some interesting things to say about that That said I just couldn t finish reading I stopped at page twenty and skipped to the end The writing uality just wasn t there for me It felt uite feverish and unfocussed and the constant food metaphors and similes were too much I didn t like the way that Zara s body was described and the weight loss discussions are full of numbers so that s a warning for anyone with ED issues not the book to choose I was hoping this would be a book about learning to love yourself regardless of weight but instead it s a weight loss journey with a lot of fat judgement built in That s not something I m interested in so even if the writing were better this wouldn t have been for me Ultimately though it was the writing that stopped me going further It really needed to be tighter and focussed Trial of a Feminizer program and it s a book that s super diverse due to being set in Western Sydney The The Breach of Crowns protagonist is Armenian Australian and the Icebergs part I read had some interesting things to say about that That said I just couldn t finish reading I stopped at The Line page twenty and skipped to the end The writing uality just wasn t there for me It felt uite feverish and unfocussed and the constant food metaphors and similes were too much I didn t like the way that Zara s body was described and the weight loss discussions are full of numbers so that s a warning for anyone with ED issues not the book to choose I was hoping this would be a book about learning to love yourself regardless of weight but instead it s a weight loss journey with a lot of fat judgement built in That s not something I m interested in so even if the writing were better this wouldn t have been for me Ultimately though it was the writing that stopped me going further It really needed to be tighter and focussed

On a diet to win the boy of her dreamsTamar Chnorhokian is a vital new voice from Western Sydney Her first novel speaks to young Australians with double servings of humour and hear. I brought this book after listening to the author talking at a book event in the city She convinced me that it was a must read and it is This book is about a girl who is down in the dumps about her weight and image and who is looking to win the heart of probably the most unattainable boy in her school There is a tragic family story thrown in too and some great superstitious Armenian traditions that are talked about too Zara and her group of friends are in their last year of high school getting ready to do their HSC and celebrate their formal But for Zara there is something missing Pablo on her hip Obsessed would have to be the appropriate word for Zara s crush on Pablo It is also what makes her go on a diet And boy does she go on a diet From 124kg to less than 90kg Zara loses weight but also loses friends in the processThis book is about a lot than a diet for me There is so much that happens in this book that I think the diet is the last thing that should be mentioned in this review Zara s relationship with her father is a roller coaster ride in itself Her friendship with Carmelina and Max are both turbulent and fierce And her obsession with Pablo is perhaps the most annoying thing about the book I get where the character and author are coming from just like probably every other girl who has ever had a crush and is reading the book But I think it is a bit much to think that after losing so much weight that he finally looks at Zara Pablo is the villain by the end of the book but that can be seen at the beginning of the bookI don t know what I think about this book I like the story I like the journey all the characters go on I like the events that take place within the story and I even like the simple yet effective writing that the story is written in I also like the food descriptive scenes and the metaphors and also how I can visualise and place the made places in the book because they are local What I don t like is how one Zara loses a lot of weight really fast which is kind of unrealistic and two that everything got better really fast after the crap hit the fan when it probably wouldn t in real life If you like diversity different traditional aspects a warped loved story and a cute friendship than this is the book for you
