SOLVED: Children's/YA > SOLVED. YA series I think. Overweight teen girl tormented for her weight falls for much older man who also admits feelings for her. I think his name started with an 'A'. He was her teacher or mentor of some kind. [s]

Tina Neidecker | 5 comments I read this somewhere around 1995, but it may be from earlier than that. I'm pretty sure there were several books, one of them may have taken place after they were together and they traveled to another country together. At some point she takes a job as a trashy romance writer to make money so that she can sneak off to see him, where they assign her a basic plot and she writes the rest of the book.

Tina Neidecker | 5 comments Thank you. I looked at every one of these, and none of them are right. Searching through these, I sort of remember that the titles all had a reference in them to weight.

Maybe check the Plus-Size YA Heroines list, too?

Tina Neidecker | 5 comments Thank you! Amazingly, this worked. I went through the whole list and found it almost at the end. It was Fat: A Love Story by Barbara Wersba
