The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things

The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things - Carolyn Mackler

...not bad. Not amazing, either. Virginia's actually a decent YA character, though she falls a little flat at times. I appreciated Mackler's willingness to tackle the subject of overweight as a teenager, and thought she handled it well. The emotional aspects of Virginia's self-acceptance and -expression were fairly dead-on, but things wrapped up just a little too neatly, and in the final chapters the "girl power" button got pushed a little overhard.
