The Shape of Us reviewed by Michelle

Four women who are absolute strangers find a common connection via a weight loss forum.  The anonymity gives them freedom to share their fears and struggles that surround their own body image issues.  It doesn’t take long before these four women realise that their connection is more than sharing diet tips and exercise ideas, but instead the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

This novel weaves the strong friendship and unites Mezz, Kat, Ellie and Jewels.  Together they not only battle weight issues but infertility, unfaithful partners, marriage breakdown and illness.  This story is real, I know I related to each character at different points of their journey.  It’s a story about the complexity of life and the importance of love and support.
