🌟🌟🌟💫 A feminist look at love, empowerment and body image, which has admirable intentions and several thoughtful and appealing elements but did not completely hit the mark for me. Abby is a plus-sized woman who has been treated shamefully by her mother (and likely others) since childhood. This part of…
