Reviews and interviews!

Review from Book Fidelity

—“I find that the best writing is the kind where you can find something of yourself in the work. That feeling like...someone has actually seen you. And I think that is so important in a work that talks about how it feels to be fat.”

Review from Jessica Belmont

—“I recommend checking this one out. It’s definitely worth a read.”

Review from JBronder Book Reviews

—“I really liked this small collection and think most people could relate to the stories not so much just because they focus on weight but because this applies to everyone that doesn’t fit into that perfect utopia.”

Review from The Weary Bookcase

—“Ali Thompson has a really compelling voice.”

Review from Ceillie Simkiss

—“If you want to take a real hard look at your thoughts about the future, you should read this short story collection. It won’t take long for it to stick in your soul.”
