Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Fat Chance by Brandi Kennedy

Reviewer: Bex
Rating: 4 out of 5 Fairies
I feel a little bereft after finishing Fat Chance. After following the main character Cass so intensely and being utterly submerged into her thought process, I know feel a little at a loss. I really, truly enjoyed following Brandi Kennedy's fragile yet strong female lead.

It took me a while to warm up to the book and Cass' character, but after a few chapters this was no longer an issue. Brandi Kennedy has successfully created an intriguing and deeply human character in Cass. By the end of the book, I felt as though I was her friend. I felt loss when she did, compassion at her plight and extreme pride as the character develops into a strong woman.

There were times that I wanted to shake the main character, yet I believed her. For the time it took me to read this book (which wasn't long as I was engaged with her story), Cass became real.

If you are looking for a story of empowerment, with a lovely lashing of romance and friendship, then be sure to pick up a copy of Brandi Kennedy's Fat Chance. 
Meet Cassaundra Keaton, an adult orphan raised in the foster system. She's overweight and struggling to survive in a world that makes her feel like she can never fit in. Follow her journey as she learns to trust and love herself, and watch her grow as she finds love. But will an issue from her past rise up to ruin her new life?

  2. Thanks for the giveaway, Brandi and I have to say I love when female characters have a womanly body instead of being stick-thin. That is so unattractive in my mind!
