High school freshman Angie sees herself the way everyone else does, as “Fat Angie,” until KC Romance, “a model kind of beauty beneath the bad-girl garb,” breezes into her small, conservative Ohio town.

Good plot and storyline but execution wasn‘t great. The writing style was a bit awkward and clunky. Full review: https://wp.me/p9zANx-mw

Super cheesy writing made it hard for me to get through, until about the halfway point where the true story kind of begins. There's a lot of set-up but a lot of it is more of the 'you should read go back and read the first book for more info' category. I ended up loving the book regardless of this, it incorporates a lot of issues into a brilliant story dealing with self-confidence, bullying and ultimately, navigating difficult relationships.

Nute Nice review! 3y

the book is about a girl named Angie who has never been given a break. She meets this mysterious girl named KC, and her life is slightly different. While trying to live through high school, Angie is going through the hardships of her sister being MIA in war. Bad description. Full one here including TW: https://instagram.com/p/BhvN4LYDlBe/

It's the ultimate comeback from Angie's life. Read it, even the cruel part every girl goes through those stages where they must push forward.

This was hard to read. I'm a mom and I just wanted to hug Angie and make it all better. Wang, too. Poor kid. The mother in this book is awful. The absent fathers are just as bad. This story packs a ton of drama in under 300 pages.

[DELETED] 1409720085 Becoming a mom really changed how I looked at every other person. Everyone is so precious and I feel such a strong motherly instinct over complete strangers. Definitely will read this one. 6y

I've seen this poster online so much but it always makes me laugh. I've known so many people who ask about movies, books and tv shows and songs this way. "What's that movie where they're brothers and work together and the cover is funny?" "What's that book with the cover that annoys me?" "What's that movie that was a book but not really?" #funnysigns

readinginthedark My favorite question when I was working at a bookstore was, "It had a red cover, maybe with a dragon on it? It was probably published about 10 years ago...or 20...no, maybe it was more recent..." 6y

I met the author last month at a conference, and she was SO cool. I really wanted to love her book, but I just didn't. The bullying that Angie endures from her peers and her family is so cringe worthy that it almost seems unrealistic. The writing is interrupted by the author defining or explaining her references, which slows down the story. Overall, it fell short for me. Has anyone read anything else by her?

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I have heard mixed reviews about this book too! 6y

Couldn't do it. 25 minutes in and I was up to my eyeballs in fat-girl-book tropes. The only thing books like that succeed in doing is reinforcing beliefs that a fat-phobic society has ingrained in its people. No thank you.
