The definitive collection of art, poetry, and prose, celebrating fat acceptance

Chubby. Curvy. Fluffy. Plus-size. Thick. Fat. The time has come for fat people to tell their own stories. The (Other) F Word combines

relatable and attractive guide about body image and body positivity.
This YA crossover anthology is meant for people of all sizes who desire
to be seen and heard in a culture consumed by a narrow definition of
beauty. By combining the talents of renowned fat YA and middle-grade
authors, as well as fat influencers and creators, The (Other) F Word offers teen readers and activists of all ages a guide for navigating our world with confidence and courage.

Review quote

"Fat adults will wish they'd had this book growing up, and fat teens will finally feel seen. Frank and fabulous." -- - Kirkus Reviews "With a collective message that your body is yours, and no one can say anything about it without your permission, the smart, funny, sometimes heartbreaking contributions will give much needed support to those who feel beleaguered by our pervasively fat-phobic culture." -- - Booklist
