REVIEW: FAT BY SARANNA DEWYLDE

ABOUT THE BOOK:

“You’re pretty, for a fat girl.” 

That’s nothing Claire Howard hasn’t heard before, and there’s part of her that doesn’t care, that thinks it’s okay to love herself just the way she is. Then there’s that other voice in her head, the one that plays on a constant loop that gets louder whenever people scrutinize her dinner order, snicker when she needs a belt extender on a plane, and outright laugh when they see her with her the kind of man they don’t think fat girls deserve. It reminds her that existing while fat is the worst thing in the world. It’s worse than being ignorant, bigoted or cruel—at least according to society’s standards. Even when she has the attentions of two men who are the embodiment of fantasy. 

But it’s not their love that matters, it’s her own. Fat is a brand that’s been seared into every aspect of her life—even her heart. Can Claire love herself enough to reach past the labels for her own happiness?

MY REVIEW:

Although this is book is a quick first person POV read, by no means is it easy. Let me explain:

It'll have you reaching for a tissue just as much as it'll have you laughing and cheering Claire on. 

All in all- this book was fan-freaking-tastic - not always an easy thing to do with a book of this length (about 50,000 if I'm not mistaken).

It's deep and moving with a bit of dirty thrown in. The characters are well developed and the book is realistic. 

I wish there was more(only because I enjoyed it so much) and it's worth the price!
