Jemima Small Versus the Universe

Tamsin Winter

Jemima Small just wants to be like other girls. She hates being called ""Jemima Big"", being forced to join the school health group – aka Fat Club – and that she can’t apply for her favourite TV show without worrying everyone will laugh. But she also knows that the biggest stars in the universe are the brightest. So maybe it’s her time to shine.

Jemima is girl who looks different to everyone else, but she’s not proud of it. At school she gets bullied, and then gets put into a special club. Can she overcome her fear and complete her dream?

I really enjoyed this book! I liked how it talked about fat-shaming and how Jemima felt uncomfortable in her body openly but also talked positively about her as well. I enjoyed the storyline and I really like the books by this author!
