Manstealing For Fat Girls

Heard about this book... from somewhere. Not sure where.

But Manstealing For Fat Girls by Michelle Embree is a young adult novel set in St. Louis in the 1980s.

It's about the feelings of angst most high schoolers feels regarding sexual orientation, weight, money or lack thereof, appearance, and the idea of fitting in. The protagonist in this novel, apparently, gets befriended by the prettiest and most popular girl in school. I gotta read to find out more.

Having been reviewed as fierce, gritty, and honest, I would say this could be a good book for any young adult in your life... or an adult who remembers what it felt like to be on the outside as a teen, but made it through with flying colors anyway.
