The Color Purple by Alice Walker, bibliotherapy on LitTherapy

This novel is about abuse that poor black women suffer when living with poverty and racism and misogyny. It is also about sexuality, spirituality and survival. But the backdrop is one of overcoming, and flourshing in spite of, abuse: and a big part of that abuse is that these women are treated badly by black men. Walker could not have written this novel, or expressed what her characters go through, without showing some men (not just black men) in a bad light. This story is compelling.

Good Girls Don't Get Fat by Robyn Silverman.  Teens often create mental "rules" about weight based on the messages they get from everyone around them — everything from "my emotional state should depend on how fat I feel" to "I'm worth more when I weigh less." Silverman uses her research results to provide tips on how to combat these "good girl rules" about weight, whether they come from media messages or from within family or social groups, and provides perspectives from plus-sized models.
