Sophomore year has just begun, and Angie is miserable. Her girlfriend, KC, has moved away; her good friend, Jake, is keeping his distance; and the resident bully has ramped up an increasingly vicious and targeted

    Angie's life is in absolute shambles. It is the start of a new school year, her sister is dead, having been killed while serving overseas in the military, her girlfriend has moved away to Texas to live with her father and her best friend has ghosted.

    Returning to school, Angie faces extreme bullying and acts of violence. During one particularly heinous incident, she stands up to her bully and breaks his nose. Since no one will come forward and tell the truth, that she was protecting herself from

    Angie's journey reminds us that grief is a long road. Her romance with the glamorous KC over, Angie is still a pariah in her family (that mom!) and her school. Her new "woo woo" psychologist is trying, but is Angie getting it? Can't wait for the broader release (I read an ARC copy!)

    Fat Angie Rebel Girl Revolution is the sequel to the Stonewall Award winning Fat Angie. The novel opens with the fallout from the previous novels’ ending. Angie has been dealing with a suicide attempt, the loss of her girlfriend, who moved away, and the death of her military sister. An outcast at school, for being overweight and a lesbian, Angie struggles with intense bullying.

    As if what is happening in her life isn’t enough, Angie’s relationship with her mother is toxic. “Why did it have to be

    I'm not sure what to say about this book. It was good, however the writing was hard to get through. However, I feel like the representation was important.

    There's the main character, who's fat, gay, and has mental health issues.
    There's Zeke, who is nonbinary and has a stoma.

    So much important representation, that it really did overpower the less than stellar writing.

    Thank you to NetGalley for providing me this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This book had me in a love-hate relationship with the main character. At the beginning, I thought that Angie, the main character was wallowing in self pity. Her woes were her total world. Angie seemed to only care about herself. Angie lost her girl friend and was devastated and she had an argument before her sister left for the Middle East and was killed. Those are legitimate woes. But it took me a while to know that her mother was truly messed up. Then bullying came into the story and I underst ...more

    I found the premise of the story very interesting, some parts even felt relatable, but I honestly found myself wanting to put the book down a few times after the constant use of hyphens. Initially I was indifferent to it when the main character used it as I believed it was simply her way of speaking and thinking, but then it was also used by everyone else in dialogue and even when writing something. It not only felt overused, I found it difficult to believe that an entire town combines their sen ...more

    I loved this book! Fat Angie: Rebel Girl Revolution is the continuation of Fat Angie which won the Stonewall Award and follows the story of Angie, a fat, queer girl who is on a journey to discover her identity while enduring the ruthless bigotry of her fellow classmates as well as mourning the loss of her soldier sister. This is the follow up I had hoped it would be. While there are some dark moments, this book sparks hope for the reader and is complete with 80s music references, an epic road tr ...more

    I felt like I wanted to protect Angie the whole way through. The mother is pure emotional abuse and I felt really angry with her character.

    It tells the story of Angie as she tries to work through her grief after her ‘perfect’ sister dies whilst deployed with the army. She is also having to deal with the bullies who verbally & physically attack her because she is fat, gay & attempted suicide in school when her sister had just died.

    I think this book could be really relateable for those bat

    I really enjoyed the first Fat Angie, and found myself missing some of the characters in it while reading Rebel Girl Revolution. Some parts of RGR were difficult to read (the family violence that seemed to come out of nowhere, and the not-unexpected issues with Gary). But by midway through the road trip, I was just as hooked as I was on the original. Still worth a read because of the representation of diverse characters.

    Look for my review closer to publication date. Not recommended due to fat-shaming and fairly graphic descriptions of physical assault on the main character.

    The book focuses on the worst things happening in Angie's world; her best friend has suddenly flaked on her while her former(?) girlfriend has fucked off across the country, her sister's memorial seems more like a ploy by her mother to gain public notice and/or sympathy, and going to school is torture after an abundance of bad things happened the previous year.
    Super cheesy (and at times straight-up awkward) writing made it hard for me to get through, until about the halfway point where the true

    Angie found a permanent place in my heart in Fat Angie, where we left her in a pretty good place. Unfortunately, her mom continues to be one of the worst moms in YA literature, KC has moved away and Gary Klein is...well, just disgustingly hateful. On the verge of being suspended and sent away to a treatment center, Angie hits the road with her former friend, Jamboree, after she finds a final letter sent to her by her sister. This companion to Fat Angie can stand alone, but do yourself a favor an ...more
