Jes Baker burst onto the body positivity scene when she created her own ads mocking Abercrombie & Fitch for discriminating against all body types - -a move that landed her on the Today show and garnered a loyal following for her raw, honest, and attitude-filled blog missives. Building on the manifesta power of Things, this memoir goes deeply into Jes' inner life, from growing up a fat girl to dating while fat. With material that will have readers laughing and crying along with Jes' experience, this new book is a natural fit with her irreverent, open-book style.

Jess Baker has done it again in this witty, thoughtful and open memoir of her history with body image, body shame, and navigating diet culture, religious restrictions and relationships.

This is a must read for anyone recovering from chronic dieting, body image struggles or eating disorders. The motif that all bodies have a right to exist is something that I and many others desperately need to hear.

Interesting and mysterious storyline. I enjoyed it very much. The narration is incredible. The actress did an amazing job at distinguishing the different voices of the characters, she really brought the story to life. I will continue on with the series.
