I will admit: I'm unfamiliar with this particular genre = X-files meets Bridget Jones meets The Incredible Shrinking Woman. But a nice change none the less. Author Tara St. Pierre gives you a quirky and fun read in 'Just a Few Inches'. Most women I know have enough guilt and pressure to fit into new cloths so this book has a positive body message for women and girls alike. I think the author needs to develop the characters' interactions more, but all in all an enjoyable read.
