Camp Utopia & The Forgiveness Diet

Bethany Stern is one of those girls with a bit of extra meat on her bones, but does that bother her? No. In fact, Bethany is one of the only people who is doesn't bother. Her mother and sister want what’s best for Bethany; a summer spent at Camp Utopia, a fat camp on the other side of the country. Bethany is convinced she will have a horrible time and lose no weight.  

This book captures every single girl’s insecurities

Additionally, her friend TJ is auditioning for American Envy, a national talent show. Bethany feels more alone than ever, and is wondering how she’ll ever survive the summer! This book captures every single girl’s insecurities and mushes them into Bethany Stern. Ruden skillfully writes from her heart to make Bethany appear right in front of our eyes.
