Cat smart, sassy, and funny - but thin, she's not. Until her class science project. That's when she winds up doing an experiment - on herself. Before she knows it, Cat is living - and eating - like the hominids, our earliest human ancestors. True, no chips or TV is a bummer and no car is a pain, but healthful eating and walking everywhere do have their benefits.
As the pounds drop off, the guys pile on. All this newfound male attention is enough to drive a girl crazy! If only she weren't too busy hating Matt McKinney to notice. . . .
This funny and thoughtful novel explores how girls feel about their bodies, and the ways they can best take care of their most precious resource: themselves.

The main character, Cat, undergoes some important changes in this book, and it was a pleasure to listen to her journey. I listened to this audiobook in the span of two days and I loved it. I loved the romantic element, although I wish I had seen more of it at the end. I love the inclusion of Einstein's quote about being a vegetarian, and the fact that the author researched the topics discussed in this book in depth, and that writing this story changed her life. I think that's a testament to how great the book is, that it could possibly impact the readers'/listeners' lives.
I own a small shop selling custom/costume Jewelry. I love to listen to audio books while I create jewelry. I love all animals and get very upset when they aren't treated well, even in fiction.
Good book. Really liked the main character. Could have done with out the author interview at the end, which took another CD
