Share it Please

Body positivity is a topic that definitely needs more representation in YA: There are too few characters who are unafraid to take pride in their body no matter the size.

Here are some novels that follow the concept and that you should definitely check out:

Special Pick

Another novel that I recently read, loved, and that features a body-positive protagonist is THE SOUND OF US by Julie Hammerle. If you like music, college settings, and enjoy pop culture references, this is definitely a book you'll want to read!

Publisher: Entangled: TEEN
Release Date: 6/7/2016
Genre: YA Contemporary   

Book Synopsis:
Kiki Nichols might not survive music camp.

She’s put her TV-loving, nerdy self aside for one summer to prove she’s got what it takes: she can be cool enough to make friends, she can earn that music scholarship, and she can get into Krause University’s music program.

Except camp has rigid conduct rules—which means her thrilling late-night jam session with the hot drummer can’t happen again, even though they love all the same TV shows, and fifteen minutes making music with him meant more than every aria she’s ever sung.

But when someone starts snitching on rule breakers and getting them kicked out, music camp turns into survival of the fittest. If Kiki’s going to get that scholarship, her chance to make true friends—and her chance with the drummer guy—might cost her the future she wants more than anything.
