Publisher's Summary

Veronica May ("Big Vee") is a bubbly, gorgeous, confident, 18-year-old theater actress from Chester, Arizona. She also weighs 200 pounds. She puts off college, her life, and her questions about her mother's death 12 years earlier to care for her widowed father.

Then, Daddy announces that he's going to remarry and Veronica feels replaced. She decides, then and there, it's time for Big Vee to shine! She escapes Arizona and follows in the footsteps of her mother, who was an aspiring actress, to Hollywood.

Between shifts with a cute co-worker at the local coffee bar, Vee auditions, falls in love, dumps a toxic friend, learns to deal with love and loss, and finally finds her place in the spotlight.

    ""Poor Selfish, Vapid Vee""

    "Poor Selfish, Vapid Vee" would have been a better title.

    I honestly thought I'd enjoy this book; fat girl makes good. But instead of being a big, confident woman a la Mo'Nique, Vee is just a selfish jerk, and while that's perfectly fine for Scarlett O'Hara, it's kind of unappealing in a person you're supposed to empathize with and cheer for.

    I found myself hoping that Vee would be a spectacular failure and would grow old and die alone, working in a coffee shop, which is pretty cruel even for me.

    This isn't fat girl makes good, this is fat girl obsesses about skinny girls and skinny boys and thinks the world revolves around her until suddently it doesn't any more and OMG!!!1 what will happen next?

    Ick. Just... Ick.
