Abstract:

"Two friends make a promise to their dying friend to face their deepest hopes and greatest fears by agreeing to stop waiting until they lose weight and start living now. As they begin to work on their list of things to do, they grow stronger and learn to embrace themselves just the way they are"--

Marley, Georgia, and Emerson met at fat camp as teens, and they never would have survived it without each other. They bonded against the disapproval of their family and friends by loving each other for who they were and dreaming together of when things would be better. They even formalized it by writing up a list of all the things they'd do once they lost the weight. Seventeen years later, Emerson is morbidly obese and on her death bed from the strain of her weight on her heart. She calls Marley and Georgia to her side one last time and makes them promise her to stop waiting to live, and do the list now. -- adapted from back cover.
