The Fat Girl By: Marilyn Sachs

Published January 24, 2012 by Hollys~BookShelf



Jeff Lyons can’t stand Ellen De Luca, the fat girl in his ceramics class. She’s huge and clumsy. Can’t throw a pot to save her life. and stares at Jeff all the time. But he’s a ” nice guy” and feels bad when Ellen overhears his hurtful remarks about her. The ” crumbs of kindness” he tosses her way soon turn into advice on weight loss, college, clothes, hair….To everyone’s surprise, good looking Jeff soon dumps his pretty girlfriend to be with the Fat girl! But as her pounds melt away, Jeff resents the happy, independent young woman he has unleashed. where is the gratitude for all he’s done for her?

My Thoughts:

wow! what a read. Once I started this I stayed up to finish it because, I had to find out how everything turned out. As you’re reading this it’s strange to see some things from Jeffs point of view but, also kind of weirdly addicting. This was such a great read it was nicely paced and the storyline is great. It quickly goes from how Jeff totally hates Ellen to how he is dating her. He starts making so many decisions for her. I just really enjoyed this book the author did a great job. I would rate this a 5 out of 5.
