I greatly enjoyed listening to this novel, both because the author wrote a warm, endearing story and because the reader did such an excellent job. Supplee managed to capture the heartache of teen obesity without being preachy or maudlin. Rosemary, the main character, was strong yet vulnerable, and I could empathize with her and the other characters. The sub-plot of her mother's cancer was also handled very well, and I genuinely LIKED all of the characters...even the prickly ones. Well done.

I hated for this to end. I hadn't realize it was actually young adult fiction when I chose it, but it didn't matter. It's a terrific story - Supplee has an amazing insight into teenaged girls. The narrator, Eve Bianco, is one of the best I've ever heard, hands down. Her southern accent is spot on. I couldn't tell if she is actually southern or not. An absolutely wonderful witty, engaging story.
