Summary
Overweight, self-assured, high school senior Jamie Carcaterra writes in the school newspaper about her own attitude to being fat, her boyfriend's bariatric surgery, and her struggles to be taken seriously in a very thin world
Summary
High school senior Jamie Carcaterra is fat -- not pudgy, not chunky, but FAT -- and she's got something to say about it. Hoping to make her classmates think beyond stereotypes and to win a college scholarship for journalism, Jamie begins writing a column called Fat Girl Manifesto in her school newspaper. Meanwhile, her (also fat) boyfriend, Burke, decides to have his stomach stapled, and Jamie chronicles his surgery and its aftermath in her column. Will their relationship survive when Burke gets thinner? -- Description by Ellen Foreman
