Artichoke's Heart

Rosemary Goode is an over weight teen. She lives with her Mother who owns the local Hair salon in a small Tennessee town. When she notices Kyle Cox, a basketball player her life starts to change.

Rosemary's problems are true to life. Being overweight, the struggles she goes through at school, at home, and trying to fit in. I liked Rosemary, she is sarcastic, snarky, and has a great sense of humor.

Kyle is very likable as well. He is not the typical (stereotypical "jock"), and I really like that quality in him. The relationship between Rosemary's Mother and (her) Aunt is also one that is true to life.

Suzanne Supplee knows how to grab the readers attention, hitting real life problem with accurate details. The story flowed perfectly, the characters are well developed and the plot is true to life.

I feel that Artichoke's Heart is perfect for young adults (as well as adult) readers. There is a very good message in this story, it is not all about losing weight, it is also about, self evaluation, self worth, family and rediscovery.

Fantastic. I loved it. ( )

This was a fantastic read.Rose was a main character that you could definitely relate to.She had the best of both worlds,by being sarcastic and funny,to somebody who was kind and compelling. The other characters of the book were great too.The author was able to make Rose somebody you could root for every page,with not only her weight loss,but how she handled her daily life. ( )

It's not so easy being Rosemary Goode and tipping the scales at almost two hundred pounds. After a spectacularly disastrous Christmas break when the scale reaches an all-time high-Rosemary realizes that things need to change. (A certain basketball player, Kyle Cox, might have something to do with it.)

Artichoke's Heart had just the right mixture to make this an enjoyable read. A main character that you liked and hoped the best for, a life for the main character that although not perfect, still had plenty of positives, and a happy ending! ( )

The scoreboard flashed. It struck me then that people did this every Friday night. While I was home with my head in a bag of peanut butter cups, the world went right on turning. Without me. I thought of Aunt Mary's mantra: Don't waste your youth being fat.
