Tiny Reparations. Mar. 2023. 320p. ISBN 9780593187043. $27. HEALTH
King’s book is a guide to moving past body positivity and acceptance into body liberation, a concept that explores the connection between body shaming, racism, and white supremacy. King, an educator and strength coach, breaks down concepts with easy-to-understand language, so the book feels more accessible than academic. She also mixes in personal anecdotes to underscore her points, and the end of every chapter includes questions for readers to ponder or answer regarding their own relationships with their bodies, racism, social media, diet culture, and privilege.
VERDICT This book will appeal to readers, particularly women, who are familiar but not extremely well-versed in topics of or relating to diet culture and social justice
