Book Summary Praise Be to the Plus-Sized Sister is a semi-autobiographical tale of seven women from the San Francisco Bay Area who are connected to each other by six-degrees-of-separation. Seeking redemption from heartbreak, infidelity, poor choices, rejection, self-sabotage, low self-esteem, and emotional and physical abuse, Natasha, Zinnia, Israel, Addison, Celeste, Lila, and Liberty endure the social and psychological pressures of being full-figured black women in a thin obsessed society. With wit, intelligence, glamour and style, and a twofold portion of sass, these soulful sisters possess faith in the midst of the storm, hope when tomorrow is not promised, and strength of character when giving up seems easier than doing the right thing. Praise Be to the Plus-Sized Sister is made up of six stories of redemption: Out of the Mind of Israel Ming, Daddys Girls, The Vibrator Virgin, Count it all joy, Saving Sister Jared, and Forgiving Liberty. Beautifully flawed, audaciously determined, and at times downright hilarious, Praise Be to the Plus-Sized Sister represents a new voice, an underrepresented story about the struggle of a unique minority group that has been misunderstood for a long time. Written in the rich and colorful language of the African American experience, by no means is this book tame. It deals with real issues women endure in modern day society, paying special attention to plus-sized African American females who confront prejudice and discrimination on three fronts: race, gender, and size. With messages of hope, self-acceptance, and second chances, Kamane Malvo Marshall encourages her readers to keep the faith no matter what.
