Summary: Jesobel Jones is bold and beautiful. The daughter of a hand model and a washed-up rock star, she sees no need to apologise for her rambling house, her imperfect family, her single status … or her weight. Jess makes her own cupcakes and she eats them, too. That is, until Own Clothes Day when a wardrobe malfunction leaves Jess exposed, and a mean girl calling her the one thing that’s never bothered her before: fat.
When I first heard about this book, I was really excited to read it because it really reminded me of Big Bones by Laura Dockrill, which I really enjoyed. Rebel With a Cupcake gave me such similar vibes, and I was really excited to read a book about body positivity, and this book definitely delivered that.
I liked all the characters, and the friendship between the main group of girls was so good. They were so supportive of each other and it was just so nice to read. I really loved how much Jess loved cooking, I found it really relatable. I really love cooking, and I especially love finding and making new delicious recipes.
I also really enjoyed watching Jess’s journey of learning to love herself again, and not worry about what other people think of her. It was such an uplifting read.
The only reason I gave it 3 stars and not more is because I didn’t really connect with it the way I wanted to. I really feel like this book would be great for people younger than me who are wanting to get into books featuring body positivity, an also for younger people who don’t feel comfortable in their own bodies, as this book will really make them feel better.
Anna Mainwaring read ‘The Lord of the Rings’ at the age of seven and hasn’t stop reading since. After studying English at university, she took the bizarre decision to follow a career in corporate banking. This made her sad so she left, went travelling and trained to be a teacher. When not teaching, writing or hiding from her children in the study, Anna can be found in bookshops, cafes or walking slowly up big hills.
