Secrets of truth & beauty Teen Book Secrets of truth & beauty

Frazer, Megan.

Former "Little Miss Maine" Dara Cohen isn't so little anymore; she's now a plus-sized teen and has no problem with that fact. But when she dares to comment on society's obsession with thinness in a video that she makes for her English class, she gets in major trouble at school and with her parents. Fed up, Dara goes to visit her estranged sister Rachel, whom she's never met, at the rural collective (and goat farm) where Rachel lives and works -- and gets a whole new perspective on life.

The earth, my butt, and other big, round things Teen Book The earth, my butt, and other big, round things

Mackler, Carolyn.

Virginia Shreves is insecure -- and comparing herself to the tall, dark, and slender over-achievers who make up the rest of her family doesn't help. Add in even more criticism than usual from her exercise-obsessed mom and the fact that Virginia's best friend has moved away, and it's sure be a bad year of epic proportions. Or is it?
