THE WEIGHT OF IT ALL, centers on Lyndsey Watkins, a happily married, well to do, mother of two, who is a nationally ranked triathlete. Lyndsey appears to have the perfect life until one day when she is kidnapped. Her family and friends think her dead, and it is a shock to everyone when ten months after she goes missing, she is found, hog-tied, dressed in a pig costume, 187 pounds heavier than when she was taken. Of course, everyone wants to know “WHY?” Why would anyone do this to her?
THE WEIGHT OF IT ALL deals with the issues of bullying, our society’s obsession with physical appearance, and one fractured family’s struggle to become whole.

I started this book on a plane and couldn't put it down. The kidnappers of a clueless fat-shaming fitness addict by family members of one of her bullying victims hold her captive for months to engage in a fitting plan of retribution that turns her life upside down. Lots of unexpected twists and turns in this book. Leaves you wondering what the end is. A real page turned, and a must read for mean girls, if they dare.
