• Fat Chance Charlie Vega by Crystal Maldonado

    Posted by Tonya Monroe-Leach on 8/1/2023

    Charlie Vega is a lot of things. Smart. Funny. Artistic. Ambitious. Fat.

    People sometimes have a problem with that last one. Especially her mom. Charlie wants a good relationship with her body, but it's hard, and her mom leaving a billion weight loss shakes on her dresser doesn't help. The world and everyone in it have ideas about what she should look like: thinner, lighter, slimmer-faced, straighter-haired. Be smaller. Be whiter. Be quieter.
