Fat Girl on a Plane
Fat Girl on a Plane | Kelly Devos
Big dreams come in all sizes, and Cookie Vonn isn't about to give up hers. High school senior Cookie Vonn's postgraduation dreams include getting out of Phoenix, attending Parsons School of Design and becoming the next great fashion designer. But in the world of fashion, being fat is a cardinal sin--and Cookie weighs in at over three hundred pounds. It doesn't help that she's constantly compared to her supermodel mother--and named after a dessert. Thanks to her work for a Scottsdale fashion blog, Cookie scores a trip to New York to meet her design idols--where she hopes to personally pitch her plus-size portfolio and appeal for a scholarship to Parsons. Her plans are put on standby when she's declared too fat too fly. Forced to turn to her BFF, Tommy, for cash, Cookie buys a second seat on the plane only to arrive in the city to find the blog is under new ownership. Cookie has been replaced by the boss's daughter, a girl who's everything she's not--ultrathin and superrich. Hurt and humiliated, she vows to lose weight, get out of the friend zone with Tommy and put her life on track. Fast-forward two years. Cookie has dropped the weight--and won the attention of designer of the moment Gareth Miller. He offers her what she's always wanted--an opportunity to live and study in New York. Cookie expected nothing but sunshine and rainbows. But not only is she stuck with the same old problems, she has a big choice to make: achieve her old dreams...or dream new ones.

I‘ve never been the fat girl on a plane. But I‘ve been the loser on the bus and the girl having a panic attack in the bathroom.
Devos‘s book lets you know that you don‘t have to stop being that person. A good many of us are freaks. What matters isn‘t that you stop being afraid a freak. It‘s that you stop caring that anyone else thinks that of you.
Devos understands this, and as her MC grows and changes, she helps the readers to understand, too.

I think I was expecting more of a romance or a few good story. But this was still interesting. How a woman navigated the world, before and after she lost weight, and how it reacted to her.

I really liked this quick read. Cookie is a girl who dealt with life as a cat girl; 2 years later she is thin, but life isn‘t better. I‘m glad this wasn‘t a fat-to-thin Cinderella story, and I like how things ended up with her men (I was gonna be so mad if things had gone differently!)

Morning reading with the cat who has destroyed all of our furniture.

Kappadeemom Awww, Bless 😻 Mine has too and my husband was SO MAD at him but guess who loves the cat the most now??? (He snuggles with him every morning and I just have to laugh) 1y
LauraBeth @Kappadeemom that‘s the sweetest 😻 My husband was mad as well until he found out she took care of our mouse problem in the garage. Now he says she can do whatever she wants 😹 1y
JenReadsAlot I can relate - when my kitten was 5 months old she broke my 43 inch TV...... 1y

RebL I enjoyed reading this book—most everything except the romance. Also, one of my cats (never discovered which) ruined my couch and chair too. Books and cats... creating common experiences. 1y
Soubhiville Uh oh... one of mine has destroyed his share too. We now furniture shop with “would Froedrick want to scratch this fabric?” As our main choosing aspect. 1y
DebinHawaii But look at that cuteness! 😘🐱❤️ 1y
RealBooks4ever I can never really get mad at my Gemma. She's such a princess! 😻 1y
sprainedbrain I have a cat who has done that too, only with my furniture instead of yours. Fun times! 😂 1y
LauraBeth @RebL Books and cats - definitely creating common experiences! 😹 1y
LauraBeth @Soubhiville oh no! 🙀😹 1y
LauraBeth @DebinHawaii she better be glad she‘s so cute 😸 1y
LauraBeth @RealBooks4ever it‘s hard to get mad at that cuteness 😻 1y

I know I‘ve said this multiple times, but oh how I wish there had been books like this when I was younger. As someone who has been on some sort of diet for the past 30 years, I can only imagine how my outlook on weight would have been different if I could have read a book like this as a teen. While this story is similar in some ways to Dumplin‘ and Puddin‘, it goes a step further by showing Cookie Vonn‘s life after losing the weight. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

AmberWB It does an excellent job of showing that being skinny, does not mean having a perfect life- an idea I know I‘ve been guilty of having for many years. The book is not perfect, but overall, I am looking forward to the next one by Kelly Devos. 1y

Sleep deprivation requires some light reading. Flows nicely.

Cookie Vonn: teen fashion blogger and designer. One Fashion Week, she gets scooped on the big interview by her soon-to-be romantic rival and all-around-nemisis. As the book progresses in dual timelines of "before" and "after" a weight loss program, we see Cookie living her dreams. When she wants to create a line for the size range 2-32, will she succeed?

Over all, a solid YA with romantic elements.
#NetGalley! Out in June.

TommieMarie74 Sounds really cute! 2y
