Book Review:
Rebel with a Cupcake by Anna Mainwaring

Although she has never worried about her weight, a problem with her outfit and an encounter with a bully make Jess question her lack of concern about her own image. This book is laugh-out-loud funny and captures teen girl life with all its ironies and contradictions. 'Rebel with a Cupcake' also explores important questions about body image, fat shaming, and self-confidence.
