Review in 5: Cute, Inspiring, Fun, Well-Written, For Teens

Review: I quite enjoyed reading this book, I was pleasantly surprised when I realized I had read it from cover to cover in one sitting. This story is the classic coming of age story with a small twist. I loved reading the changes that Bea goes through as the book progressed. The whole story is fun, addicting, and keeps you hooked from page one. I totally wanted Bea to get with whom she ends up so that is always a plus. (See Mom, the characters do listen to me when I tell them things ;)

The development of Bea over the course of the book was by far the most interesting  part but there are so many other things that make this book great. I love how Bea learns to handle school and work and learns to love her body for what it is and not what she wants it to be. Great read for any women having self-esteem issues, not that we will all become plus size models know what I mean. The only thing that I had problems with in this book was a I could not get a good read on what Bea looked like in my all, so I sort of had to fill in someone, but it definitely wasn't a deal breaker for me.
