      Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel

      This magical read was originally written in Spanish. As the youngest daughter of the De La Garza family, Tita is forbidden to marry and forced to stay home and care for the house. Somehow, the food she cooks for family and guests reflect how she’s feeling: angry, joyful, sick or even romantic. One meal she cooks even grabs the attention of a boy named Pedro, and there are plenty of recipes to follow.

      Models Don’t Eat Chocolate Cookies by Erin Dionne

      Celeste Harris was perfectly comfortable in her own skin before her aunt entered her in the Miss Husky Peach Pageant for plus-sized girls.
