Ages 14 And Up

This commercial, intersectional feminist YA anthology celebrates body diversity and fat acceptance through compelling short stories.

With 16 stories that feature fat main characters in a multitude of genres and tropes, and written by authors who live those lives too, this anthology celebrates and empowers those who move through life in big bodies. These are diverse, own-voices contemporary, fantasy, and sci-fi stories – providing readers the opportunity to dream and see themselves represented in a kaleidoscope of characters, where fat teens express themselves through fashion, sports, food, music, art, where they undertake quests, take on haters, and fall in love.

About the Author

Cassandra Newbould is the creator and host of the Fat Like Me podcast and community. Fat Like Me is a show where Cass chats all things fat with authors, entertainers, and activists about life, the arts, and why we desperately need more body diversity in kidlit today. As a writer of middle grade and young adult fiction, Cassandra creates stories where kids of all sizes can see themselves featured as the main character and not just the funny fat friend.
