The heartwarming new novel from the sparkling Laura Dockrill, introducing Bluebelle, and her moving, hilarious take on food, body image and how we look after ourselves and others. It's a food diary. I have to tell the truth. That's the point. Bluebelle, aka BB, aka Big Bones - is a sixteen-year-old girl encouraged to tackle her weight even though she's perfectly happy, thank you, and getting on with her life and in love with food.
Then a tragedy in the family forces BB to find a new relationship with her body and herself. . . Tuck in for best mates, belly laughs, boys and the best Bakewell tart. -----Love for BIG BONES'Big Bones is the book I wish I'd had as a teenager and Bluebelle is a friend I wish I had today.
Laura has written a beautiful love letter to some of the most important things in life: friends, family and food.' Linsdey Kelk'Stuffed with lashings of laugh-out-loud loveliness (just wait until you read about Bum Tills...), relatable real-life truths and love in all its complicated, dizzying forms (food-love, friend-love, sisterly-love, boy-love, self-love), this is, quite simply, the best YA book about self-esteem and body image I've ever read' Lovereading
