Fat Girl on a Plane

We rated this book:


Cookie has so many big dreams: to start her own designer brand for plus-size girls, attend Parsons in NYC, meet her fashion idol (the devilishly handsome Gareth Miller), and rock the world of fashion. Except for one problem…she’s FAT. After being deemed too fat to fly on a plane to her future, Cookie Vonn finally snaps.

738 days of NutriNation later, Cookie is designing, being talked about, and adapting to the rich life in Gucci heels. SKINNY Cookie is being loved. But while Cookie is finally fitting in, her dream of creating clothes for plus-size girls drifts further every day….

This a story that can make an impact. Strong female characters? Check. Moral with meaning? Check. I love the character arc of the main character–the transition between diminished to strong. Cookie doesn’t want to face the truths if that means letting go of her naivety. This book shows how everything you need to get from here to there is already in you. You’re a toolbox equipped with all the necessities. You can either use these metaphorical hammers to make an impact yourself or let someone else use you for your tools. And guess what? It doesn’t matter how you look when you rock the world.

Fat Girl on a Plane is powerful, feminist, and cliche in all the right places.
