Celeste. What a great name. Celeste doesn't want to model in the Husky Peach contest, but her aunt entered her in it, and she doesn't want to dissapoint her mom. She didn't ask, but now Celeste's stuck doing the contest. So she forms a master plan.She'll lose twenty pounds. Then she'll be a Skinny Banana. Then she won't have to do it. I think that's dumb.Listen to a great song explaining why here. I think that Celeste (and the people around her) are way to preoccupied with her weight. It's not like it's a big deal. Get over it. Anywho, overall this book was a very light and entertaining read.
Here's the Blurb:
Walk the runway for all the world to see?
Nope. No way. NEVER.
At least, that's what I thought—until Aunt Doreen secretly entered me in the Miss HuskyPeach pageant for plus-sized girls. I couldn't do it, but I felt too guilty to quit.
There was only one way out...
This is the story of thirteen-year-old Celeste Harris, who used to be perfectly comfortable with her weight. She also used to think nothing would make eighth grade worse than super-popular, super-mean Lively Carson's persistent insults and attempts to steal her best friend. But along came the chance of being crowed a chubby teen queen, and suddenly it was clear: Things could be much worse. So Celeste crafts a plan—she'll sacrifice her chocolate cookie obsession, lose weight, and shrink right out of the competition.
What follows is a series of escapades both hilarious and horrifying, as our heroine tries to hold her head high both on the catwalk and off—and learns to show the world who she is from the inside out.
I give this Book Three Stars.
