you should read the book
21 January 2011 | by jeffandchell-956-192777See all my reviews

before jumping to judgment on the development of the friends characters, you should give the book: "the Cinderella pact" by Sarah strohmeyer a read. i think the movie did a good job of staying true to the author's story and what a great story it is. so often you read a great book, then a movie is made and it is nothing like the story. thankfully that was not the case in this instance. while the movie doesn't delve as deeply into the secondary characters lives as the novel, you still see the point that the author was making. it is not being "skinny" that empowers these women; it is the bond of their friendship and the self-confidence that they build in one another. we should all be so lucky as to have friends like deb and nancy.
