This Book Isn't Fat, It's Fabulous

This Book Isn't Fat, It's Fabulous - Nina Beck Okay, so very different cover and title- and very different YA inside. PICK IT UP. It really is fabulous. Riley, the main character is funny, authentic, snarky, and has some important (and not so, lol) things to say. I love that she knows what she wants, and if she doesn't she figures it out and goes after it. This book deals with the issue of not being 'perfect' size, but being okay with it. It has an important message and more people should listen! The side characters are rich and have personality. They all have a purpose and something definite to bring to this book. From her frenemy, to her roomate at camp. I also like D, the best friend. It is fun to go on that journey with her and discover things about friendship and love. Eric is amazing- he is funny, easy to like, and has some amazing lines. I'd love to have him as a book boyfriend. This book made me smile and I totally recommend it.
