Body Image and Self Perception Month (BISP) is an event hosted by Jo at Once Upon a Bookcase during the month of July. The focus is on the portrayal of issues like eating disorders, obesity/being overweight, disability, disfigurement, and low self-esteem in YA fiction. Participating bloggers will be reading and reviewing books, interviewing authors, or writing special posts on the topic.
I am participating in BISP Month by posting reviews and hopefully an interview with Jan Blazanin, the author of Fairest Of Them All. I will also be talking about the body image issues I struggled with as a teen and what I am currently struggling with as an adult.
I will be reviewing the following books:
Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles
Crazy Beautiful by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler
Fairest Of Them All by Jan Blazanin
If I can, I also plan to read and review these books:
Pretty Face by Mary Hogan
My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters by Sydney Salter
