Summary / Annotation
Nice YA read submitted by Juliettie on August 13, 2013, 6:29pm I often enjoy YA reads and this one was quick and fun. She actually reminded me a lot of myself at her age. Scary. Everything turns out a bit too rosy for Ann, but it's better than the disease-of-the-week, disaster, dead parents stories that most YA novels seem to be based around.
Good, Modern Story submitted by Beth Manuel on June 13, 2014, 3:40pm This was a great read written by Jackson, Michigan author K.A. Barson. It explores the concept of body image, teen girls and their moms. The wedding that Ann was trying to lose weight for was for her Aunt in a lesbian relationship. The book touched on homophobia as well. I recommend this book as a great summer read.
