Vibrant, vivacious, and gorgeous, Wendy Shanker is a fat girl who has simply had enough—enough of family, friends, co-workers, women’s magazines, even strangers on the street all trying (and failing) to make her thin. Written in Wendy’s wonderfully funny and candid voice, The Fat Girl’s Guide to Life
provides thought-provoking insights, statistics, and body-image resources intended to restore a realistic standard of beauty and self-acceptance to the 68 percent of American women who wear a size 12 or larger. The Fat Girl’s Guide to Life
invites you to step off the scale and weigh the issues for yourself.
