"The heroine's transformation into someone who finds her own style and speaks her own mind is believable and worthy of applause." (Publishers Weekly)
As a bigger person in a skinny world, I was interested by the title and wanted to see if my view was the same as "Ginny's".
The story progresses through some troubles, some decisions, and some changes that make this a wonderful story. It allows the reader to see the world from a different point of view from, possibly, his/her own.
This is a great story for 14 yo and up. There are some sexual situations and an adult situation regarding the main character's brother. However, overall the story is very much worth the time and the theme comes through loud and clear. I loved it!
This story starts out funny and enjoyable. The preview makes it sound fun but don't be fooled. One third of the way through it the main character gets REALLY depressed and they talk about date rape and self mutilation lot.
School Librarian, Cybrarian, Voracious Reader and Lifelong Inquirer.
Witty YA lit tale that deals with date rape, body image and first sexual encounters.
Anais' first kiss with Froggy, how she fell on and off her diet, her relationship with her faraway older sister.
Parker is very believable as a teen and as a listener you forget she is not Anais herself.
I listened to this book over a few weeks while I had time in my car and it was very easy to pick up where I left off without a lot of memory jogging. A relaxed, undemanding story.
