Big Fat Disaster (YA)
Book #19 Read in 2015
Big Fat Disaster by Beth Fehlbaum (YA)
This book tackles a lot of major issues--eating disorders, suicide, bullying, adultery and homelessness. Chloe is the "fat girl" in a pretty, political family. She never feels as if she fits in or that her mother is proud of her. After her father falls from grace, Chloe moves to a new town where she becomes a target of bullying by the "mean girls" in her new school. It shows how horrible high school can be. I hated the mother in this book but was happy that at the end, she at least gets some of what she deserves. I felt for Chloe throughout the book. This was a good read.
