Fat Girl Walking by Brittany Gibbons

Fair warning:  Do not read this book while sitting in a coach seat on a transatlantic flight.  You will annoy everyone around you with barely suppressed laughter.  I actually had to stop reading for this very reason.

This combination memoir-essay collection is a wonderful blend of poignant reflection and blunt tell-all.  Fat shaming is pervasive in our culture and Brittany does her best to embrace herself and encourages her readers to do the same for themselves.

Favorite Lines:

“This is not a diet book.  In fact, if I do this right our cycles will align, and we’ll be eating our feelings together by the third chapter.”

Head on over to her excellent blog to see more great writing.
