Big Bones by Laura Dockrill
“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, relatable real-life truths and love in all its complicated, dizzying forms, this is, quite simply, the best YA book about self-esteem and body image I’ve ever read” Lovereading
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.
