Fat girl alert!

It's happened.

It took a long time, and it took a cover redesign, as well as a forthcoming show on ABC Family, but we have come to a day I have been looking forward to for a long time.

How awesome is that? This is an entirely marketable cover. It is appealing and relatable to so many young women out there. It's not threatening, it's not mocking, and it is a true representation.

A HUGE thanks goes out to Simon & Schuster for the redesign here. This is so much better than this, this, and this. Let's not resort to this, this, or this again.

  1. Great cover. Too bad I didn't care for this book at all or I'd be more interested in the show.

  2. This is just fantastic! Mollie pointed me in the direction of your post as I am discussing the representation of characters on covers for today's Body Image & Self-Perception Month post on my blog. I hope you don't mind, but I am going to link to this post from mine. I'm currently reading Huge at the moment, so this is awesome! (Though the UK cover is basically a big cake.)

  3. Sorry, I didn't get to the links when I commented before - I see you already know about the cake cover.
