This Book Isn’t Fat, It’s Fabulous by Nina Beck

05 Mar

Imagine gossip girls for the slightly fluffy set and you have the basic premise behind this book. Riley is uber smart and super rich-she runs with the fast crowd and has a take no prisoners policy when it comes to the boys in her high school and the torture she inflicts on her best “frenemy” Marley.  Riley’s big secret is she has a huge crush on her best friend “D” and her evil step-mom is sending her to fat camp for the summer. If she can just keep all her secrets in the air, she just might survive…

This was a fun, quick read about a fat girl who has more sass and confidence than most fat girls and that makes you want to like her…even if she is a little bit evil. Typical teenage angst and lots of quick wit will have readers laughing throughout.  The additional materials in the form of letters and chat logs add to the humor. 2008, 233 pages.
