Worth the Weight

It is the second month of 2019 and I have to tell you guys - I am struggling to keep my New Year’s Resolutions going. I thought I'd review this book because it gave me an excuse to reread a book with a lot of body image-related themes, in the hope that it would give me a boost of confidence to help push me through February.



I first read Dumplin’ in 2015 when it was released because it received a lot of pre-publication hype and I was in need of some inspiration after leaving graduate school. Netflix recently turned this YA novel into a movie and, since people everywhere have New Year's resolutions on their mind and body image is sure to come up, I decided that now would be a good time for a review.
