Curvy Girls Can't Date Bullies
by Kelsie Stelting
Book 6 in the Curvy Girls Club
Release date: February 27, 2021
Kelsie Stelting does it again! With a new group of seniors at Emerson Academy, Stelting continues her heartfelt stories that encourage teenage girls to love themselves for who they are and stick up for those around them.
While Cori is Ginger's younger sister and the twins' older sister, she feels neglected and ignored by her overprotective parents. While walking into her first day of senior year, she spots a classmate getting teased and corralled by Ryker and his fellow bullies. Cori decides to speak up for her friend and starts a war with Ryker. When the school hears about the event, they offer forming The Curvy Girls Club 2.0 and new friendships follow trying to get back at Ryker. However, Ryker starts seeing Cori differently and seems to want to change for her. Can Cori trust her heart to Ryker after all he's done including making Ginger's life miserable? Is he really interested in changing who he is to be worthy of her?
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and it was interesting to see the changes that Cori and Ryker go through. I admit the story was a bit predictable but that's what tropes are lol. I do not condone bullies but I do know that bullies can also have insecurities and troubles. Redemptive stories are always inspiring, and swoon-worthy grand gestures always make me smile (or squeal). I laughed. I cried. I sighed. Body positive books for teenage girls are harder to find and I appreciate what the author does in this entire series. When/If I have a daughter, I will definitely be recommending these books for her to read.
Highly recommend if you enjoy clean YA fiction with romance and humor and heart.
My thanks to the author for providing me with an ARC of the book. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. No positive review was expected and no compensation received.
