“[Tovar] excels at critiquing diet culture; describing how it matches the American narrative of failure and success as personal endeavors and how dieting and fatphobia are ideologies that rely upon inducing inferiority. . . . Combining aspects of feminism and women’s health, Tovar’s impassioned call to action challenges Western beauty norms and how women (and girls) develop self-esteem. Ideal for YA crossover.”—Library Journal, July 1, 2018
