Let’s face it; body image is a huge issue. We are constantly bombarded with the message that we need to fit an unattainable mold of perfection. Jes Baker tears down this fallacy and lays it out plain and simple; you don’t need to change to love your body. Her witty yet factual writing will get you to laugh and feel as though you’ve made a friend. I wish everyone would read this book because Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls has a message for everyone who has ever been uncomfortable in their body.
