This irreverent, but touching tale is a 2004 Michael L. Printz Award Honor Book by acclaimed author Carolyn Mackler. Fifteen-year-old Virginia Shreves is overweight and doesn't have many friends, but wants to be like her family—picture perfect. What she knows about her family, however, slowly begins to change after one tragic phone call. "The heroine's transformation into someone who finds her own style and speaks her own mind is believable and worthy of applause." –Publishers Weekly

I picked this title up on a whim and was surprised by how much I became engaged with the characters. The conflicts wrapped up a little too quickly and a little too neatly towards the end. However, the conflicts and the characters were well developed and I liked that our protagonist deals genuinely with issues that resonate.

The narrator did a good job as well.
