#YABkLove Day 16: All Bodies Are Beautiful

#YABkLove Day 16

I wanted a day to dedicate to bodies that, in any way, deviate from standard beauty. Interpret this how you will. It could mean plus sized, physical disability or handicap, too skinny, too weak, too strong whatever. I think for awhile there was a trend for all YA heroines being very skinny and pale and that is great for those that fit that description. However there is a huge range of other bodies that should be represented. So let’s see what you can come up with!

A favorite of mine is Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy, about a self-described fat teen who is loads of fun (and a Texan like me).
