"'Fat Girl Finishing School' overtook me. I don't know what else to say. It left me both weeping in public and snapping my fingers while alone, and I can't think of another book of poetry that's ever done the same. Fat girls of the world will find their voice through Wiley's brilliance, and we all owe her for that."
