Her sister was captured in Iraq, she’s the resident laughingstock at school, and her therapist tells her to count instead of eat. Can a daring new girl in her life really change anything?
Angie is broken—by her can’t-be-bothered mother, by her high-school tormenters, and by being the only one who thinks her varsity-athlete-turned-war-hero sister is still alive. Hiding under a mountain of junk food hasn’t kept the pain (or the shouts of “crazy mad cow!”) away. Having failed to kill herself—in front of a gym full of kids—she’s back at high school just trying to make it through each day. That is, until the arrival of KC Romance, the kind of girl who doesn’t exist in Dryfalls, Ohio. A girl who is one hundred and ninety-nine percent wow! A girl who never sees her as Fat Angie, and who knows too well that the package doesn’t always match what’s inside. With an offbeat sensibility, mean girls to rival a horror classic, and characters both outrageous and touching, this darkly comic anti-romantic romance will appeal to anyone who likes entertaining and meaningful fiction.About the Author:
e. E. Charlton-Trujillo is an award-winning filmmaker and author of two novels, Prizefighter en Mi Casa, winner of a Delacorte Yearling Award, and Feels Like Home. About her new book, her first for Candlewick, she says, “The first chapter of Fat Angie began on a restaurant napkin while listening to Lenny Kravitz’s ‘Are You Gonna Go My Way’ on my iPod. Something in the pulse of the music ignited a distinct voice for this kid and her unbelievably odd and amazing world. Needless to say, I’m glad I kept that napkin.” e.E. Charlton-Trujillo lives in Cincinnati.
