Fatropolis is a well-written, insightful book that gives the reader a realistic view of how overweight people are viewed in a thin society. The message from this book - Love Your Body!

What I liked: What is beauty, and why don't we ask that question more often? Sometimes we have to juxtapose norms to understand how arbitrary they are, and Ms. Thompson has done just that. I flat loved every page of this book because the journey it documents is one we should all take. I think people should learn to accept themselves no matter what size they are, and know all the way through that being fat doesn't diminish their intelligence or make them any less valuable. And besides the message, the writing is great. It's not just a good read; it flowed very well and kept me captivated. What I didn't like: I didn't like that the story ended. In sum: It isn't often that a book comes along that can touch your soul. Every single high school should require that its students read this, and you should read it, too.
