about

Despite her massive size, Meghan Ball is the most invisible person at Valley Regional High. People say things in front of her as if she doesn?t exist. And most of the time, she feels like she doesn?t? until Meghan sees Aimee Zorn. Aimee is as skinny as Meghan is large, and as outwardly angry as Meghan is inwardly sad. Meghan instantly recognizes a kindred spirit in Aimee, another person using her body to say what she cannot. Alone, they are powerless, but together, Meghan and Aimee join forces to get sweet revenge against the one girl in school who hurt them both.
Madeleine George is an award-winning playwright and a founding member of the playwriting collective 13P. She is also the director of the Bard College satellite campus at Bayview Women’s Correctional Facility in Manhattan. Ms. George lives in New York City.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It Was Alright This book was alright, I wasn't too fond of the writing style, it seemed like the author tried a little too hard to write in teen slang, the word "like" is used a lot and it gets super annoying. The story itself is a neat idea but some pages were so boring I actually skipped them. Over all the book is OK, not great and definitely not something I would read again.
