    It starts with a plane seat. Cookie Vonn is a senior in high school and already starting to live out her dream of working in the fashion industry. Through an internship at a local fashion blog, she has the opportunity to fly across country to NYC to interview famous designer Garreth Mi...

    I finished this book last week and totally forgot to add my review! The short version: I adored it. The longer version: It's a bold, sharp, smart, totally unforgettable gem of a YA contemporary debut. The main character, Cookie Vonn, is a girl you'll cheer for and relate to as she stru...

    I fell in love with this book from the prologue, where the author explains this is not a Cinderella story of getting thin, but that the first chapter was based on a true experience of how she was treated on a flight based on weight. Which really strikes home in a visceral way. But I...

    It's not often a book makes me want to stand up and cheer (along with making me LOL throughout). FAT GIRL ON A PLANE is like SEX IN THE CITY meets BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY meets something uniquely and completely all its own (I mean, how many authors can get away with casually and hilariou...

    DNF, but I have to review this. First of all, it was an ARC. Secondly, this book has been all over fat YA Twitter, and I was super excited for it. HOWEVER, I'm not going to finish this. I'm not even going past 25%. I don't need to read about an "after" thin girl, and the "before" fa...

    I'm really behind on putting reviews up here, but this article https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/29/op... came across my twitter feed and it made me want to crosspost, so, skipping ahead for this one. Blog link: https://lainahastoomuchsparetime.blog... Warning, this review is 3500 ...

    *https://mrsbbookreviews.wordpress.com Body image is a particularly sensitive topic, which impacts on young adults and adults alike. Inspired by her own experiences with body image, debut author Kelly deVos brings her audience the tale of Cookie Vonn, a late teen grappling with the in...

    I thought this was a great debut. I highly suggest reading the author's note. It explains why the book is written the way it is and how it started from a personal experience on a plane. Fat Girl on a Plane is told by one narrator, Cookie Von. But it is told in alternating ...

    A really good intention with a very bad performance... It would have being a good book if the author had a defined audience because I got the sense that it was meant for YA but there where several aspects that make me doubt of it. I could not take the idea that I was reading a story ...

    This book is whip-smart, funny, and examines some really important issues. I was hooked by the main character's voice and there's something very sexy and feminist about it. I imagine this will be a favorite on the shelves and will appeal to both teens and adults. Loved it. ...

    This was not the book for me. It was neither fat/body positive nor was it a tone or storyline I had any interest in continuing with. I DNF'd at 24% and am not doing a star rating because I can't speak to the entire book. ...

    m sorry but this book was just not for me. There was constant switching back and forth of timelines that just made me super confused at times and had a hard time following. I also expected this book to be different and made me a bit uncomfortable about my weight and myself reading this...

    *https://mrsbbookreviews.wordpress.com Body image is a particularly sensitive topic, which impacts on young adults and adults alike. Inspired by her own experiences with body image, debut author Kelly deVos brings her audience the tale of Cookie Vonn, a late teen grappling with the in...

    I thought this was a great debut. I highly suggest reading the author's note. It explains why the book is written the way it is and how it started from a personal experience on a plane. Fat Girl on a Plane is told by one narrator, Cookie Von. But it is told in alternating ...

    A really good intention with a very bad performance... It would have being a good book if the author had a defined audience because I got the sense that it was meant for YA but there where several aspects that make me doubt of it. I could not take the idea that I was reading a story ...

    This book is whip-smart, funny, and examines some really important issues. I was hooked by the main character's voice and there's something very sexy and feminist about it. I imagine this will be a favorite on the shelves and will appeal to both teens and adults. Loved it. ...

    This was not the book for me. It was neither fat/body positive nor was it a tone or storyline I had any interest in continuing with. I DNF'd at 24% and am not doing a star rating because I can't speak to the entire book. ...

    m sorry but this book was just not for me. There was constant switching back and forth of timelines that just made me super confused at times and had a hard time following. I also expected this book to be different and made me a bit uncomfortable about my weight and myself reading this...

    Fanart ROUND ONE! Cookie Vonn by Pinguicha on DeviantArt ...

    FAT GIRL ON A PLANE is told in alternating timelines--FAT, before Cookie lost 199 pounds, and SKINNY, after. Cookie expects her life to be so much better once she's lost the weight, but both her FAT and SKINNY timelines turn out to be full of body shaming, jerks, and disappointment. Wh...

    Thank you netgalley for the e arc! Cookie is amazing. This book was amazing. I've officially been blown away by this novel. Okay so let me start out by saying that contemporary fiction is NOT my thing at all. Unless I can relate to a character, it sucks. Being a bigger girl myself, ...

    I hate to give poor reviews as I know how much work is involved in writing, researching, and getting a book to print. However, for me this was dangerous. Body shaming is not acceptable. Advanced dieting is not acceptable. Hate against overweight people is not healthy. We've all been...

    Please note that I received this via NetGalley. This did not affect my rating or review. I had a hard time with this one. I think the back and forth of the story-lines, Cookie being "fat" and Cookie afterwards being "skinny" just made the flow of this book slow to a crawl. We also h...

    4 stars I think the first thing that needs to be said about this book is that I stayed up until almost 2 AM reading it in one sitting. *nods sagely with weary, red eyes* Yup. Something about this story was so addictive. But it wasn't like a trashy-sort of addictive, more like ...

    Wickedly funny and compulsively readable crossover YA/adult. Cookie Vonn is a plus-sized young woman with big dreams for working in fashion -- specifically, using her talent and passion for design to create clothes that make people of all sizes feel beautiful, and taking the industry t...

    Reading a well-written book makes me want to write a better-written review. Kelly deVos? Fat Girl on a Plane makes me want to write the best review I?ve ever written. This book wasn?t what I was expecting. Honestly, the number of books with plus-size protagonists I?ve read i...

    I thought this was a great debut. I highly suggest reading the author's note. It explains why the book is written the way it is and how it started from a personal experience on a plane. Fat Girl on a Plane is told by one narrator, Cookie Von. But it is told in alternating ...

    FAT GIRL ON A PLANE is told in alternating timelines--FAT, before Cookie lost 199 pounds, and SKINNY, after. Cookie expects her life to be so much better once she's lost the weight, but both her FAT and SKINNY timelines turn out to be full of body shaming, jerks, and disappointment. Wh...

    Thank you netgalley for the e arc! Cookie is amazing. This book was amazing. I've officially been blown away by this novel. Okay so let me start out by saying that contemporary fiction is NOT my thing at all. Unless I can relate to a character, it sucks. Being a bigger girl myself, ...

    I hate to give poor reviews as I know how much work is involved in writing, researching, and getting a book to print. However, for me this was dangerous. Body shaming is not acceptable. Advanced dieting is not acceptable. Hate against overweight people is not healthy. We've all been...

    Please note that I received this via NetGalley. This did not affect my rating or review. I had a hard time with this one. I think the back and forth of the story-lines, Cookie being "fat" and Cookie afterwards being "skinny" just made the flow of this book slow to a crawl. We also h...

    Fanart ROUND ONE! Cookie Vonn by Pinguicha on DeviantArt ...

    FAT GIRL ON A PLANE is told in alternating timelines--FAT, before Cookie lost 199 pounds, and SKINNY, after. Cookie expects her life to be so much better once she's lost the weight, but both her FAT and SKINNY timelines turn out to be full of body shaming, jerks, and disappointment. Wh...

    Thank you netgalley for the e arc! Cookie is amazing. This book was amazing. I've officially been blown away by this novel. Okay so let me start out by saying that contemporary fiction is NOT my thing at all. Unless I can relate to a character, it sucks. Being a bigger girl myself, ...

    I hate to give poor reviews as I know how much work is involved in writing, researching, and getting a book to print. However, for me this was dangerous. Body shaming is not acceptable. Advanced dieting is not acceptable. Hate against overweight people is not healthy. We've all been...

    I finished this book last week and totally forgot to add my review! The short version: I adored it. The longer version: It's a bold, sharp, smart, totally unforgettable gem of a YA contemporary debut. The main character, Cookie Vonn, is a girl you'll cheer for and relate to as she stru...

    I fell in love with this book from the prologue, where the author explains this is not a Cinderella story of getting thin, but that the first chapter was based on a true experience of how she was treated on a flight based on weight. Which really strikes home in a visceral way. But I...

    It's not often a book makes me want to stand up and cheer (along with making me LOL throughout). FAT GIRL ON A PLANE is like SEX IN THE CITY meets BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY meets something uniquely and completely all its own (I mean, how many authors can get away with casually and hilariou...

    There comes a time when you read a book and know?this was what the world needs. That?s just what I thought when reading Fat Girl On A Plane. The world NEEDS this book. Girls, young and old, need this book. This book takes a sensitive matter of peer perception and adds humor and ...
