Weight Loss Terrorists by Redd Kaiman

Title:  Weight Loss Terrorists
Author:  Redd Kaiman
Published:  March 6th 2012
Genre:  Young Adult
Shelf:  Review Copy
Rating:  ★★★

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A psychopath threatens Anne Kitts, an obese caring mom, to lose weight over six months or her husband will be executed.

My Review:

This is a short story about a battle with weight loss that has a serious twist. The protagonist’s husband is abducted and the ransom is not the usual money, but rather that she loses an unspecified amount of weight in a 6 month period of time. The main character’s battle with herself had me feeling like I should get off the couch and do something. I could connect with her and the difficulties that she was facing, but couldn’t understand her reluctance to do so based on what was on the line. All in all, I truly enjoyed reading this short story, however, there are some grammatical errors that could use some fine tuning.
