Told in a convincing professional young-adult voice, Michele Gorman’s Weightless brings two former high-schoolers together, reigniting a once imaginary romance with all its enticing dreams and possibilities. Unfortunately, Jack has mistaken dietician Annabel for the gorgeous nemesis of her miserable teens, and Annabel goes along with the mistake, not wanting to remind him of the spotty overweight girl she used to be. Can true romance be built on lies such as this?

Weightless combines the story of Annabel’s mistaken identity with another teenager’s desperate search for individuality. Wise lessons in self-esteem are offered through natural conversation and memories, and the writing has a pleasingly light and humorous touch, even with Annabel’s soul-searching and guilty secrets. Nicely edited (though an awkward homonym gave me pause for thought), smoothly written, and quickly read, this short romantic novella has a pleasingly English flavor with fun characters and sweet light-hearted plot.
