It's hard to find a book about plus size girls,but this book is good. Not the best but its good. I could relate to Celeste. The plot is great,the charaters are OK,the writing style it could be better. The book is a slow read overall
Good Points

I laughed, a lot, at this book. Well not at the book but with the book.
As a middle-schooler I had been teeny-tiny in every way possible
(height, weight, voice) so while I never got the taunts of 'Mooooo'
from my classmates, I did get height jokes a plenty. And mouse jokes. I
felt as if Celeste and I had a lot in common (not just the love of
cookies) and that made me root for her the entire time.

I admit
her attempts to wreck her chances at Miss Husky Peach (husky, who in
their right mind would refer to a girl as 'husky'?) were fun and
creative. I was thrilled that she didn't angst about the fact she was
chubby neither before or after her Operation Skinny Celeste plan. She
might not have been thrilled with being chubby, but she didn't spend
most of the book whining about it and trying unhealthy methods to lose
weight.

And her positive message I think won me over. Just
because we're not all size zero doesn't mean we're any better or worse
for it. Its how you see yourself and how you feel about yourself. Sure
eating cookies instead of veggies isn't healthy, but why deny yourself
a treat every so often? Learn to balance out everything and in the end
you'll be a happier you.

Celeste has always been called the Fat Girl, not only by the popular Lively and her antlike friends, but everyone knows she isn't the skinniest girl in the world. Celeste's best friend, Saundra, helped her get out of every bad situation, but now Saundra's gone to the other side; with the popular, pretty, matching-outfits crowd. What's more, Celeste's aunt enters her in the HuskyPeach pageant, a clothing company for plus-sized girls. Celeste is too afraid to back down but what will they call her at school now? There were many things that sounded appealing to Celeste about modeling, but models don't eat chocolate cookies.


Unique and splendid, this book catches the teenage girl audiences in more ways than one. The writing was simple and told only what needed to be mentioned. Each character's personality was intriguing and added more appeal to the story. There were parts that I didn't favor, due to Celeste's new found confidence. The story was interesting and explored the insecurities that most girls deal with, both teenage and preteen. I was expecting Celeste to find out that she was beautiful just the way she was but she had to lose weight to feel good about herself. Every way the story went, it was still a good book.
