Sarah Strohmeyer’s The Cinderella Pact tells of the diet-spurred transformation of Nola Devlin, a frumpy editor at the Us Weekly-ish Sass! Source of Angst Nola’s biggest secret — that she’s been posing as star columnist (and hot British babe) Belinda Apple — starts to unravel. Weighty Issues Nola and two girlfriends make the titular pact to drop their extra pounds, inspired by (faux) Belinda’s column touting her own (faux) drastic weight loss. Lowdown We’ve had our fill of both the impostor-columnist and the getting-skinny-changes-your-life shticks.
