Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Her sister was captured in Iraq, she's the resident laughingstock at school, and her therapist tells her to count instead of eat. Can a daring new girl in her life really change anything?

Angie is broken — by her can't-be-bothered mother, by her high-school tormenters, and by being the only one who thinks her varsity-athlete-turned-war-hero sister is still alive. Hiding under a mountain of junk food hasn't kept the pain (or the shouts of "crazy mad cow!") away. Having failed to kill herself — in front of a gym full of kids — she's back at high school just trying to make it through each day. That is, until the arrival of KC Romance, the kind of girl who doesn't exist in Dryfalls, Ohio. A girl who is one hundred and ninety-nine percent wow! A girl who never sees her as Fat Angie, and who knows too well that the package doesn't always match whats inside. With an offbeat sensibility, mean girls to rival a horror classic, and characters both outrageous and touching, this darkly comic anti-romantic romance will appeal to anyone who likes entertaining and meaningful fiction.

Review:

"Charlton-Trujillo offers a hard-hitting third novel that swings between incredibly painful low moments and hard-won victories." Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Review:

"Angie's anguish and the dysfunction of her family seem quite real." Booklist

Review:

"The voice of a dry and direct third-person narrator works in a story laden with heavy topics, including war, death, suicide, cutting, bullying, and homosexuality." School Library Journal, Starred review

Review:

"Angie epitomizes the hidden anger and self-abusive mentality of the traumatized victim. While she does not completely recover, Angie's discovery of worth and direction in life leaves the reader with a hopeful ending." VOYA
