Tracey L. Thompson, Writer
JENNY CRANDELL (POV) is a young woman living alone in New York. She is fairly successful at work but doesn't understand why she can't meet someone to share her life with. She blames all her troubles on her size, as she is larger than society says she is supposed to be. While trying to find a dress for a corporate function, she accidentally falls through a portal in the wall of a dress shop and finds herself in Fatropolis, another world, where fat people are the beautiful ones. She becomes concerned, considering she only has a few days before she has to be back to work, and wonders who will take care of her cat. She has no choice but to start looking for a way to get back to her world, and in the process meets a host of characters, of all different sizes, who lead her to start questioning everything she has been conditioned to believe; especially about size. Thus begins her heartwarming and often hilarious adventure of exploring the other side of weight discrimination in a world where fat people lead happy, normal, guilt-free lives. In her exploration, she not only finds herself, but she also finds adventure, intrigue, friendship, and love...eventually.
