I adored this book. Willowdean, the main character, is a fat girl that's comfortable in her own skin. She doesn't care about slimming down or have any interest in participating in the annual teen pageant that captivates the town each year, that her mother happens to run.
This book tells the story of Will dealing with loss and change around and within her. It's a story of self exploration, confidence, friendship, and family. It's funny and realistic.
The characters are relatable and well-developed. You'll love them: flaws and all.
Great read - I definitely suggest it!
