Walker, Sarai2015
The diet revolution is here. Andit's armed. Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed, because when you're fat, to be noticed is to be judged. Or mocked. Or worse. She works answering fan mail for a popular teen magazine, and is biding her time until her weight-loss surgery. Only then can her 'true life' as a thin person finally begin. When a mysterious woman starts following her, Plum finds herself falling down a rabbit hole and into an underground community of women who live life on their own terms. There Plum accepts a series of challenges that force her to deal with her past, her doubts, and the real costs of becoming 'beautiful.' Meanwhile, a dangerous guerrilla group, 'Jennifer,' is beginning to terrorize the world in the name of mistreated women, and before long Plum becomes entangled in a sinister plot. The consequences are explosive. Dietlandis an utterly gripping, original and funny debut novel that takes on the beauty industry, gender inequality and our weight-loss obsession from the inside out and with fists flying. 'Sarai Walker has written a call to arms. Devious, subversive, delightful,Dietlandis a SCUM Manifesto set to a pop music beat and Plum Kettle is a feminist hero for the modern age.' Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones.
