Donna | 2 comments As a pre-teen I read a book that stuck with me called "Teeny" or "Tiny" I think. I can't find anything about it by looking up both of these words. She was a fat girl living with an aunt and uncle on a farm, they treated her badly, she ran off with the circus as The Fat Lady and while there fell in love with one of the other "circus freaks" and, I think, became the Circus' costume seamstress. Found the family she always wanted in these circus folk. Would like to know name, writer and get a copy, if possible.

You might want to check it out and see if any of the titles and/or descriptions ring a bell.
