Angie has to deal with a lot. Everything from her distant and not-so-nice mother to being bullied at school for her weight. This story deals with heavy topics like cutting, bullying and war, but while heavy, it portrays a realistic experience of one girl in high school. If you like to read stories where people overcome the odds stacked against them without it working out perfectly, this is a good one to check out.

Best thing Is the fact that she's gay isn't front and centre, there's a bigger background story

Awesome story! This would be a good read for a mother & daughter or for a book group. There are numerous topics that could lead to wonderful discussions.

I agree with amcewen10. This is a good book for anyone who feels like they don't belong or are "coming out". Touching and very real. It's sad to think that for some people this is a way of life. I would love to meet Fat Angie and give her a hug :)
