Cupcake by [Cookie O’Gorman]

Ariel, aka Cupcake, enjoys her quiet life by hanging with her best friend, baking and watching movies. When she is nominated to be on the homecoming court, she is paired up with super hunk Rhys. Rhys is the quarterback for the football team, is moody and has some secret he’s not wanting to share. Being paired together means that they must do a bunch of stuff like dance together. Cupcake, who is overweight, is not so sure about being in the spotlight or hanging out with Rhys. Rhys, however, has other ideas.
I have just got to say that I love that authors are putting plus sized characters into print as the main character. Books should represent the population and for a long time, this portion has been overlooked. This book is absolutely heart lifting with the way that Rhys builds Cupcake up.
I enjoyed this book so much that I purchased a copy to add to my classroom library. This is a book not to be missed.
Many thanks to Entangled Publishing and Net Galley for providing me with an ARC of this book.
