I was completely absorbed by this book, once I picked it up I couldn't put it down! It is so well written, so funny, with such a wonderful message about being oneself in the face of the tremendous pressure of adolescence coupled with society's twisted love affair with food/war on fat. Given the recent statistic that 66% of Americans are overweight, this book lands smack in the middle of the national zeitgeist with compassion, razor-sharp intelligence and humor. This is a great book for teens and adults - fat or thin.

What's worse than being fat your freshman year? Being fat your sophomore year. Lifeused to be so simple for Andrew Zansky–hang with the Model UN guys, avoid gym class,and eat and eat and eat.
