In a little catch-up, Abby discusses Lizzo's Big Grrrls, Roe v. Wade, and where to get tickets to the More Than Tracy Turnblad show. Then she is joined by Jennifer Weiner, bestselling author of 16 novels, including The Summer Place which came out last week! They talk book cover trends, Carnie Wilson, diet culture, growing up without a TV, school weigh-ins, finding your style in a larger body, and adapting books for the screen.
*This episode contains a brief mention of suicide when Jen discusses the book "Sheila Levine Is Dead and Living in New York"! Skip forward a couple minutes at 42:23 and you'll be able to avoid it.
