In the sequel to Liza Palmer's 2005 novel Conversations with the Fat Girl, The F Word sees Olivia have to come to terms with her past. The synopsis says: "Olivia Morten is perfect. Maybe she's constantly hungry, but her body is to die for. Maybe her high-flying publicist job has taken over her life, but her clients are LA's hottest celebrities. Maybe her husband is never around, but he is a drop-dead-gorgeous doctor. And maybe her past harbours an incredibly embarrassing secret, but no one remembers high school ... right?
When Ben Dunn, Olivia's high school arch nemesis and onetime crush, suddenly resurfaces, all of her hard-won perfection begins to unravel. As she finds herself dredging up long-suppressed memories, she is forced to confront the most painful truth of all: sometimes who we become isn't who we really are." The F Word is out in April 2017.
