Vigrina is a girl who is unsuecure about her wieght. She also feels like she is does not belong to the family. Her sister and her mom had a perfect body. Every girls thinks her brother is a hotie. Virgina was thinking aren't im suppose to be like them? Viginia feels pressured by her her family, but mostly her mom to make her lose weight. Since Vigina is unsuecure about her weight she doesn't date boys in fact she has a set of rules that fat girls shouldn't do. Virgina has always thought of her brother as a role model, but when he get kicked out of collage for a sex party. She didn't who her brother was anymore and lost touch with him. Virgina was not confindent of dating, but when Froggy Welsh the fourth apeared everything changed. In all I really liked this book and reccomend it to anyone.

Maia Davis Mackler's story was very inspiring. She wrote in a way that made the reader believe that she has experienced some of the situations personally. She does a great job with characterization and developing the plot. She makes it a littler more difficult to figure out the climax seeing as there could be so many but that only helps the story flow more and interest the reader. The author took her time with this story instead of getting straight to the point and rushing. She went into juicy details at the appropriate times. Overall, the book was very enjoyable.
