Notes:
When Pandora picks up her older brother Edison at her local Iowa airport, she literally doesn't recognise him. Edison's slovenly habits, appalling diet and know-it-all monologues drive her health-and-fitness freak husband Fletcher insane. Fletcher eventually delivers his wife an ultimatum - it's him or me. Putting her marriage and two adoptive children on the line, Pandora chooses her brother - who, without her support in losing weight, will surely eat himself into an early grave.

Reading Group review: We all loved the book, the humour and the tight writing style. Knowing that the author had lost her brother due to obesity/heart problems brought an autobiographical edge to the book as Pandora grappled with the question as to whether she could have saved his life. We loved the characterisations. Highly recommend this gripping read.
