A nice contemporary novel featuring a "minority" YA character (minority only in the YA lit world, not the "real" world). It was nice to see such a diverse cast in this novel; the main character is fat, one of her bff's is a lesbian, and the MC's boyfriend is fat and black. However, I felt that the characters were not as well rounded as they could have been. No, they weren't flat, but they weren't "real" people either; just somewhere in the middle. But the book moved well and I was invested to a certain extent in Jamie's struggles.
