Huge

Huge 
Book by Sasha Paley
TV show on ABC Family
Review of TV show
Huge is the story of self-confident Willamina (she calls herself Will), whose parents send her to fat camp. She's not thrilled to be there because she likes herself just as she is, so she rebels by selling black market candy and pushing people's buttons.

She shares a cabin with a group of girls, all with their own issues: one with bulimia, one who puts pictures of skinny women on the wall for "thinspiration", one who just wants to fit in.

But fat camp isn't that unlike the real world: campers separate themselves into cliques, and romance really can happen between people who happen to be overweight (shocker!). I've only seen the first episode, but I'm already hooked.

If you didn't catch it on TV, you can watch it free online here: http://abcfamily.go.com/shows/huge.
