Ada's Rules (2012)

 

Preacher's wife Ada Howard receives an invitation to her college reunion. The once skinny and beautiful Ada believes that she has let herself go over the years and feeling deprived of love at home she has her eyes set on her college crush Matt. In order to make herself perfect, Ada decides to make a goal to lose 100 pounds in a year and sets herself goals to research different methods of dieting and exercise. Pulling bits and pieces of advice from friends, family and diet books, Ada writes a list of Diet Rules. Through dieting though, she soon finds herself re-discovering who she really is and comes to the realisation that her marriage is failing and that it may be time to move on. This is one of the best African-American novels I have read in a long time and I would recommend it to everyone as it's one book that everyone who has ever had negative thoughts about themselves will be able to connect to and think "OMG, that's like me" or "I do that". (PP) 9/10
