What a great hero. Troy: the depressed "Fat Kid" from a military family whose mom is dead and preppy little brother is mean. I love that K.L.Going never apologizes for Troy, nor does she make him change -- this is not a "fat kid makeover" book. She just gives him a set of drums and an unlikely friend so he can finally learn how to be OK with who he is. One of the best "self-acceptance" books I have ever read. --Rachel
