Life in the Fat Lane

THERE'S A PERFECT GIRL at every school, yours included. You know her. Beautiful. Talented. Smart. Great parents. Cool boyfriend. You can’t even hate her, because, of course, she’s so nice. At Forest Hills High, Lara Ardeche is that girl. But things can change. “Skillfully drawn, resulting in a compelling story. . . . An enjoyable and thought-provoking read.”—School Library Journal “Readers will be totally caught up in Lara’s struggle to find her true self under all that weight.”—Booklist An ALA Best Books for Young Adults From the Hardcover edition.
