Models Don’t Eat Chocolate Cookies
by Erin Dionne
Young Adult Fiction

This is a witty, angsty tale of self-esteem issues and teenage misery. Celeste is overweight and in junior high school, two things which should never occur simultaneously. When her Aunt Doreen enters her in the Miss HuskyPeach contest, Celeste is in danger of becoming the spokesperson for heavy girls across the country. She does everything she can to sabotage her chances of winning—including dieting in the hopes that she’ll be too skinny to compete. As Celeste struggles through a series of humiliating incidents at school, loses her best friend to the skinny blonde social princess, attends fittings for a heinous bridesmaid dress, and meets other HuskyPeach contestants, she finds herself becoming more comfortable in her own skin. This is a funny, smart, and eminently believable story that had me smiling from beginning to end.
