Thirteen year-old Celeste is spending junior high hiding behind oversized sweats, Oreo cookies, and her best friend to protect herself from her classmate's anti-fat taunts. She doesn't think much of her plus-size figure until her aunt enrolls her to be a contestant in a teen plus-size fashion show. Celeste can't think of anything worst than to not only be fat but to be the queen of the teen fats in her city, so she goes on a diet. I won't reveal any more as it will spoil the plot, but I was pleasantly surprised by this young adult novel despite some of the cliched mean girl antics. The teen characters have unique and believable voices, and Celeste is not afraid to eschew euphemisms and call herself fat. She uses it as a plain descriptor although her classmates use the word as a taunt. A must read for any teen struggling to accept themselves and emerge as free thinking unique individual.
