“There was a girl. Her name was Angie. She was fat.”
There are many other ways in which I felt a connection to Angie, through the bullying at her school and the issues she faces with her mother, so this book was a bit heavy of a read for me at times. Especially because everything is happening at once, so there really isn't time to come to terms with a situation before more things get piled on top of it.
For the most part I liked the book. But I also found it incredibly frustrating. I think the book would have been better if it were in first person.
I am adding a platypire for how emotional the book made me feel. I love when books make me react, especially if it can make me cry. Which it did.
