The hilarious new work from Van Whitfield, writer-on-the rise and author of the Blackboard bestseller Beeperless Remote.
In Something’s Wrong with Your Scale, Van Whitfield introduces the likeable Sonny Walker, a thirty-something Mr. Nice Guy who’s found companionship and comfort with Marsha. The only problem is that he’s become too comfortable. Weighing seventy-five pounds more than when the courtship first began, the newly food-obsessed Sonny just can’t stay away from Marsha’s marvelous dishes, even in the middle of their breakup conversation.
Determined to slim down and get his girlfriend back, Sonny joins the FutraSystem weight-loss center and meets potential love interest Kayla, as well as a host of other colorful characters. In a heartwarming tale that is alternately hilarious, wise, and ultimately self-affirming, Whitfield has created a thoroughly delicious and engaging novel sure to be enjoyed by those who have waged the battle of the bulge, or know someone who has.
VAN WHITFIELD is the author of the Emerge and Blackboard bestselling novel Beeperless Remote, which has been optioned as a feature film, and Something’s Wrong with Your Scale! He lives in suburban Washington, D.C.
