BBW - Curvy and Thoughtful - List 1

A Listmania! list by KES (The South)
The list author says: "This is a list of thought-provoking books featuring heroines who are curvy (aka BBW's, plus sized, Rubenesque, zaftig, chubby, plump, round and fabulous, etc.). This list contains memoirs of famous fat people and normal fat people, chick lit, poetry, self-help, fat awareness, young adult, picture books, and anything else that's not in my other lists.
