Peel Away the Layers…
…and you will get to know fifteen-year-old Rosemary Goode, who tips the scales at more than 200 pounds. As part of a post-Christmas/New Year’s resolution, she decides it is time to tackle her problem. At first she tries fad-diets. But, Rosemary finally takes a more practical approach after finding something unexpected. As she sheds the weight, she also leaves behind the hard, outer shell she’s created for herself over the years to reveal a new healthy, softer, more open-hearted teen.
A romantic sub-plot with the incredibly likeable and keeping-it-real Kyle Cox is a bonus in this story about transformation.
