The Thin Person Inside
Kristen Jensen, a Navy veteran, tips the scale at a crippling three hundred pounds. In desperation she asks her VA therapist if she can go into addictions treatment with the guys where she meets Sean. With black hair, blue eyes, and a perfect body she figures the reason he’s speaking to her is that she’s the only other person in the room.
The Haystack told their lead singer, Sean Wesley, to get clean or get out. But none of the big-name clinics worked. Sean’s a Desert Storm vet, so they send him to a VA in the middle of nowhere. When he meets Kristen the first day, he thinks it’s tragic such a pretty girl’s trapped in a huge body. And her honesty, intelligence, and bravery are even more impressing. Sean’s drawn to Kristen, but she’s had decades to build layers of defense.
Please don't let the title fool you! This is NOT a how to manual. This is a story of love and inspiration! It's a tale of two people who met because of bad choices they made and had the courage to face them head-on. Both are fighting addictions, one drugs, the other food. Along the way, they become friends. Their romance is not a smooth path, but neither is real life and the characters and their supporting friends ARE real life! This is one of the most heart-felt true to life love stories I have ever read. The author puts her heart and soul into Sean and Kristen. The characters are all well developed. They could easily be someone you know or even yourself perhaps. Kudos to Ms. Weber for another great book! She has done it again! She is fast becoming my "go to" author!

A beautifully inspiring story! A story of struggle and fight. It is inspiring to anyone fighting against food or trying to maintain the fight against food.
When you fight against the person you see in the mirror, when you know there is a wonderful person inside. Maybe just maybe you can see the Thin Person Inside.

Gripping story of the difficulties of fighting any kind of addiction. The characters are heartfelt and this book is well worth reading. I highly recommend it.
I'm trying to write this without spoilers. If I have any criticism, is that the issue with Kristen's daughter seemed to be solved far more easily than the difficulties faced by other characters. For that, I would give it 4.5 stars, but I'm rounding up.

Well done, Ms. Weber.
This is a raw and revealing account of addiction, with a sweetness to it that pulls the reader in from the first. Ms. Weber writes a sometimes gritty, yet positive story of lives temporarily on the wrong path and desperately wanting to right themselves. You want a happy ending, the same as the characters do. You never give up hope which is, I believe, the author's message. Never stop trying; never give up hope.
