This anthology was absolutely wonderful. I'm not the biggest fan of nonfiction so I wasn't motivated to finish it all in one sitting, but I think that's what makes it even better. It covered a wide variety of topics, not just advice about being a fat person. It covers everything from letters to their past selves, dating advice, or just advice on how to be your best you. It was really inspiring and just all around wonderful. By it being non-fiction, I got to enjoy and be inspired by this anthology for the week it took me to read it. I got to read and digest inspiration and words from people like me and really think about what they were saying. I think this book could inspire anyone but I am so happy to finally see an inspiration book for me. I'm fat and fat isn't a bad word. The title alone makes me feel so good about myself. I think this is a must for anyone who isn't sure they can love the skin they're in. *I received a complimentary copy of this book from Amulet Books through NetGalley.
