Summary, etc.:
FIFTEEN-YEAR-OLD VIRGINIA SHREVES feels like a plus-size black sheep in her picture-perfect family, especially next to her star-athlete brother, Byron. Not to mention that her best friend, Shannon, has moved across the country, leaving Virginia to navigate an awkward budding relationship with Froggy Welsh the Fourth all alone. Froggy might like her now, but she has her doubts how he'll react if he ever looks under all her layers of clothes. In order to survive, Virginia decides to follow the Fat Girl Code of Conduct, and it seems to work-until a shocking act causes the Shreves family façade to crumble. As Virginia's world spins out of orbit, she realizes that being true to herself might be the only way back. Told with a perfect blend of humor and heart, this updated edition of the acclaimed Printz Honor winner now features an author's note, modernizations to the text, and other never-before-published material.
