This was such a fun read!

It's a YA zombie story that takes place at a fat camp. The satire in the writing was perfect for the story. Great character building with kickass girls taking care of themselves made this one a much needed break from the domestic thrillers I've been reading.

Great message! I didn‘t always love the delivery, but I got some key points to take away with me.

Although a bit self-helpy for me at times in the delivery, the underlying premise is spot on. The Body is Not an Apology and if we could get past the body terrorism (I love that phrasing and will fully adopt that one) we practice on ourselves and others for not fitting some ideal that doesn‘t even exist and is completely subjective anyway…we would come a long way as a species. I particularly appreciated that she took this concept of body ⤵️

Riveted_Reader_Melissa ↪️ positivity and applied it to all bodies, regardless of color, size, sexuality, presentation, ableism, etc…it all boils down to the same core, policing bodies that don‘t match some ideal. 3mo
KathyWheeler I liked this book and was surprised about that. I really thought it would be too new agey for me. In some ways it was, but overall, I really appreciated it and learned a lot from it. Most importantly, I think, was how to cope with my own body negativity. 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @KathyWheeler I felt very much the same, but still got a lot out of it too. 3mo

Hosted a great PRIDE Storytime at our local sheep pasture today. 🐑 🌈 📚 Tagged is one of my favorite reads of the day!

LiteraryinLawrence This sounds great! It‘s also cool that you have a local sheep pasture. 6mo
monalyisha @LiteraryinLawrence Yes! I don‘t live in the same town I work in but it‘s lovely (& totally worth the 45-minute commute). 💓 I‘m lucky I get to split my time between two stellar communities. 🌟 6mo
ReadingRachael Oh my goodness, I love the stuffed toy! 6mo
monalyisha @ReadingRachael She was originally a footstool! I found her languishing away in the attic & held a naming contest at the Library. Patrons chose to call her JK Growling, which I was nervous about but have actually come to love. It was a little awkward bringing her to a PRIDE event given her namesake but I like to think we were reclaiming the narrative — putting JK in the place she always *should have* been standing. 6mo
ReadingRachael Love the story (and the tutu) too! ❤️😄 6mo

This book is a great introduction to beauty at every size, BIPOC oppression, transgender and LGBTQIA+ issues.

I thought the themes of this book would focus on body positivity as it related to body size, but was pleasantly surprised that it related to all ways one should love their body. Radical self love in all forms, from size, color, ability, age, and body parts.

I'm not quite sure I buy the idea of a fat camp happening over the winter holidays, because kids don't get that much time off of school, but strangely that was what I found to be unrealistic and not the idea that weight loss bars were turning kids into zombies. I'm pretty much ready for the zombie apocalypse, and I was definitely more prepared for that than I was for COVID-19.
