    Conclusion: A Fat Pedagogy Manifesto 2^3 the very existence of the field of fat studies an "invitation to revolution" (p. ix). Many revolu-tions, both big and small, often are kicked off with manifestos. It is telling, for example, that The Fat Studies Reader reproduced the "Fat Liberation Manifesto" at the end of the book. This is the longest book I ever read, longer than "Atlas Shrugged" and "Lord of the Rings". This book is really more of a testament than a manifesto, but to truly reflect the book's contents it should be titled "Peter Pan's Crystal-Palace Underpants". Favorite quote: "My penis were retarded." RaymondSequenza.

Big Fat Manifesto is Vaught's seventh book for teens, and the follow-up to her well-received novel, Trigger, which tapped her experience as a neuropsychologist to explore the dilemma of a brain-injured boy who had tried and failed to commit suicide by shooting himself. Vaught boldly confronts anti-fat discrimination with a seductive mix of emotion and politics.

High-school senior Jamie, pursuing a journalism scholarship to fund college, begins a school-newspaper feature called Fat Girl Manifesto. Her scathing, impassioned columns attract widespread media attention by tackling myriad prejudices against fat people, such as doctors.

The book Big Fat Manifesto is a courageous story about, of course, a "Fat Girl" named Jamie. She goes through obstacles to exploit the real world of how everyone stereotypes and lable people being fat. Jamie also has a column in the school newspaper called the "Fat Girl" series that really catches attention to others.

I’m THE Fat Girl, baby. I’m a senior, and I by-God do own the world this year, so put that on ice and gulp it down. I’m The Wire’s new feature—the Fat Girl Manifesto.

I’m large. I’m loud. Go big or go home. Let me take care of a few myths right now, before you even set up a stereotype: Speak gently to poor Fat Girl. The Big fat manifesto book reads in places more like a rant than an emotionally involving story, and much of the Fat Girl Manifesto will be familiar (vanity sizing, the ineffectiveness of fad diets, etc.).

And that was a simple page novel written by Susan Vaught titled Big Fat Manifesto. The novel centers around Jamie Carcaterra, an overweight senior in high school who writes a weekly column in her school’s newspaper detailing what she feels are her rights as a fat girl in a world demanding skinny.
