I came across this as I was browsing the YA section at the library. I decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did. ( )

Big Fat Manifesto by Susan Vaught is a book that's full of spunk, sass, and the spirit of teen rebellion. Jamie is a senior in her high school who writes a column in the school newspaper every week. The column sheds some light on her experience as the "fat girl" of her grade. Yeah, she's Fat with a capital "F", and she flaunts it like it's her job. But underneath all the self confidence and attitude, we discover a girl who's really not as sure of herself as she'd like to believe. The column shares her overweight boyfriend's experience with gastric bypass surgery, her own experience with losing weight, and even her love life as she stumbles through the school year. It's funny and original, and it really puts things into perspective as to what it's like to have a body type different than your own. ( )

Fat girl writing a column about being fat. Interesting insights for one that isn't terribly overweight. ( )

Being an overweight teen myself, I found this book to be funny and very relatable to. Most people won't admit that they judge people on how big they are and turn a blind eye to the fact that bigger people really do have it harder out there in the real world. At times I did find Jamie to be a bit whiney but her jokes and funny newspaper articles lightened the mood of the story, it wasn't all complaining and nagging skinny people. I liked how Jamie has an overweight boyfriend , Burke, who struggles with the decision to get gastric bypass surgery or not, and how Jamie has two bestfriends who are skinny so you get some perspective on bigger people from littler people. I think Vaught did an excellent job of "embodying" an overweight teenager who goes through daily struggles because of her weight. ( )

This book was pretty funny. At times I felt as though the novel could go either way. It was great to see a character go through real teenage struggles and be both a good guy and a bad guy. ( )
