Reviews

'Perfect, kind, hilarious and persuasive' Lena Dunham

'This book is the fat best friend you wished you had before endlessly trying to fit in' Scottee

'I loved every single word of this masterpiece! ... I want to hug every page, and shout it from the rooftops. It explains so beautifully what it is to be fat ... the shame you experience and but also the utter joy of learning to love yourself and to see through the lies' Helen Thorn, Scummy Mummies

'As an old-school stand-up of the self-deprecating variety, I found Sofie's book fascinating and it's introduced to me a whole new school of thought' Jo Brand
