Plus (Review)

By: Veronica Chambers
Release Date: 8/5/2010
Summary: "This is the unbelievable story of how I went to college, gained twenty-five pounds, got dumped by my boyfriend, failed physics and became a worldfamous supermodel."

So begins the Cinderella story of Beatrice Wilson, whose life changes overnight when she’s discovered by a scout for the oldest, most prestigious modeling agency in America—for their plus-sized division.
Now she must find the confidence to vanquish skinny rivals, fend off sleazy photographers, and banish scheming frenemies in her rise to superstardom, all while trying to get her ex-boyfriend back. But Bea learns that to win prince charming, you first have to find a way to love yourself.

Review: Plus sounded like a fresh, new book about the fashion and modeling business. Most books with this topic have a perfect, skinny girl as the main character, like Gossip Girl, and the A-list. Chambers’ book was about a plus model which was a different and a nice change.

While Plus started out strong and grabbed my attention, I never understood Bee’s fascination with her ex-boyfriend. He was horrible to her, and all she wanted to do was win him back. At times I felt like yelling at her to get a clue of the other guy, the one who actually cared about her.

Even though the book started well I think it was dragged out a bit to long. The ending was also very rushed. Just as I started liking Bee again and wanting to read more, the book ended.
