Fifteen-year-old Virginia feels like a plus-sized, black sheep of her family, especially next to her brother Byron. Not to mention her best friend has moved, leaving Virginia to navigate an awkward relationship with a boy alone. He might like her now . . . but what if he ever looks under all her layers of clothes?
In order to survive, Virginia decides to follow a Fat Girl Code of Conduct, which works, until the unthinkable causes her family's faÃ§ade to crumble. As her world spins out of orbit, she realizes that being true to herself might be the only way back.
Told in a perfect blend of humor and heart, this acclaimed, Printz Honor winner resonates as much today as it did fifteen years ago, now featuring a new cover, author forward, text updates, and other never-before-seen back matter.
