Editorial Reviews

Review

"A hilarious tale about one woman's attempt to do whatever it takes -- juicing, clay diets, private island wellness retreats -- to lose 30 lbs." 
People

"There are no funnier, wittier people in all the land than Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza. The writers of The Knockoff are here with their second novel about one woman’s attempt to basically fix her entire life, which she is positive will happen by losing 30 pounds. Think naked yoga. Think gross green juices. Think crazy cycling classes. Yes, please!"
—Ruthie Friedlander, InStyle 

"You’ll breeze through this one like you would a Saturday spin class with the most fabulous playlist and the promise of brunch cocktails after."
—Kirkus

"The Devil Wears Prada of the wellness world... It’s about time the New York City fitness scene—booming in 2017 like never before—got its roman à clef."
Well+Good

"When Janey Sweet … navigates topless yoga and ruthless cycling classes in Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza's satire, she realizes she’s better off without the green juice."
Us Weekly

"Takes aim squarely at the way in which our weight- and fitness-obsessed culture infiltrates our daily lives... Fitness Junkie will make you laugh as much as it will make you think."
—Shanee Edwards, SheKnows

"I laughed out loud reading Fitness Junkie, which serves a heaping helping of hilarious satire, profiling the step-counting, calorie-obsessed New Yorkers who fill the cronut-shaped holes in their souls with workouts."
—Jill Kargman, creator and star of Odd Mom Out

"Fitness Junkie is a deliciously fun romp through the bizarre and cult-like workouts of the superrich, from naked yoga to clay diets to private island wellness retreats. Funny, frothy and delicious."
—Jane Green, author of Falling

"I was thrown into the diet and exercising regimen of the 0.01% and was barely able to exhale. Fitness Junkie moves furiously through the torturous extremes women subject themselves to, all in the name of pleasing someone else. Sykes and Piazza work their magic through the eyes of a woman more like yourself. Read this and you will never eat cronuts with a side of guilt again."
—Maureen Sherry, author of Opening Belle
