No Big Deal – Bethany Rutter
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like being a fat chick. (It’s okay to use the word fat, it even says so in this book) then this book is for you.
Rutter writes about Emily, an intelligent overweight girl and her love interest Joe. We see the struggles and stigma that Emily goes through with being the size that she is. – (If you are on the smaller side and fatphobic you should also read this book) We witness her mother trying to force her into weight loss groups, and onto faddy unhealthy diets, but we also witness friendship, love, broken hearts. – and girl power, with strong girls sticking up for themselves.
A fantastic read. 4/5
