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.

Good book. Really liked the main character. Could have done with out the author interview at the end, which took another CD
