Good in Bed is a chick-lit written by Jennifer Weiner (author of In Her Shoes, turned movie starring Cameron Diaz), with a fiesty and humorous full-figured protagonist.
The story surrounds 28 year old protagonist Cannie taking a break from her boyfriend misinterpreted as a complete break-up, who becomes the author of the “Good in Bed” column for a women’s magazine. To the shock and humilition of Cannie, the column is about their past relationship and how “Loving a larger woman is an act of courage in our world.” We follow Cannie’s ability to deal with issues such as her mother coming out as a lesbian, body image, moving forward in her career, and maturing into a woman.
The writing is witty, light, and funny, and Cannie is created as someone we can realistically connect with and relate to. Definitely a great read!
