Fat Angie

Angie is the only one in her family - maybe the only one in the world - who believes her captured war-hero sister is still alive. Angie needs to believe it. It’s better than thinking about last year, when she tried to kill herself in front of a packed gym. Better than trying to steer clear of Stacy Ann Sloan and her posse of ultra-mean girls. Better than dealing with her corporate-lawyer mother, who wants to know only one thing: When is Angie going to lose exactly 29 pounds? Then a new girl, KC, arrives in Dryfalls, Ohio. She’s beautiful, hip, and smart, and everyone wants to know her. From the minute they meet, KC sees the real Angie....

Publisher's Summary

Angie is the only one in her family - maybe the only one in the world - who believes her captured war-hero sister is still alive. Angie needs to believe it. It’s better than thinking about last year, when she tried to kill herself in front of a packed gym. Better than trying to steer clear of Stacy Ann Sloan and her posse of ultra-mean girls. Better than dealing with her corporate-lawyer mother, who wants to know only one thing: When is Angie going to lose exactly 29 pounds?

Then a new girl, KC, arrives in Dryfalls, Ohio. She’s beautiful, hip, and smart, and everyone wants to know her. From the minute they meet, KC sees the real Angie, not the fat girl hiding from her pain under a mountain of junk food. She sees Angie for who she really is: someone who just might shake things up - on the basketball court and in KC’s life. Outrageous and touching, this darkly comic, anti-romantic romance brings us unforgettable characters on the edge.

    "Tiring"

    As an ex-mental health professional this book fascinated me. A gay fat girl who had lost an overachieving sister in Iraq; sounds like a layered complex, contextual read.. Unfortunately too many incidents of attack by the mean girl in school. Too many incidents of monumental insensitivity from her mother; too many incidents of Angie moaning about these two things as if she couldn't understand how either of these could happen. It makes it incredible that KC; for no apparent reason immediately falls for her. Then after being spurned by Angie is instantly willing to give her another chance.
    Then there is the matter of the physical beatings Angie endures at the hands of Melanie Ann Sloan. Angie is a center; Melanie Ann is a point guard. I was a high school center; I know the size difference between the two of those positions. It is possible, but not likely that the smaller girl could so completely physically dominate the larger one. Plus on one occasion when she does fight back she decks the smaller girl, then thereafter refuses to defend herself. Again a highly unlikely scenario.
    I gave this selection a second listen hoping to regain the fascination I'd felt with the first few hours of the book. I enjoyed it even less the second time around. Perhaps it's just a case of my being an adult male, well into middle age; but I can't recommend this that any adult purchase this program.
