Summary
Jazmin is a sassy, tart, talented, and plus-size woman who lives in a world that insults and rejects her because she's fat - or is the emotional abuse she heaps on herself the real problem? She is a department store employee with fashion designer dreams who has created a designer line for full-figured ladies, but flounders until she wins a Palm Springs vacation. There she meets a handsome Nigerian doctor named Tunde. He cherishes Jazmin's full figure as a mark of beauty. But can Jazmin overcome her self-loathing and accept Tunde's love?
