A warm and universal story about finding the courage to be the real you. Greta Gale has played the part of the funny fat one her entire life, hiding her insecurities behind a big smile. But size doesn't matter when you can laugh at yourself, right? Until Greta realises she's the only one not laughing. And deep down, she's not sure if she'll ever laugh again. But when an unexpected road trip takes Greta from her home in Dublin to the bright lights of Vegas, she begins to question if you need to be the perfect size to love yourself. Or to fall in love. Because sometimes the best moments in life come when it's all gone a bit pear-shaped... "Convincing characters, always gripping, endearing, with a cracking pace."
