The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things
With her larger-than-average body and a plus-size inferiority complex, fifteen-year-old Virginia Shreves often wonders if she truly belongs in her picture-perfect family. Her mother and father don't seem to think so, or at least that is how it feels to Virginia. Meanwhile, her secretive after-school make-out sessions with Froggy Welsh the Fourth make her feel good in the moment, but bad after. Only her best friend, Shannon, miles away on the opposite coast, understands who Virginia really is inside. But when Virginia discovers an awful truth about her handsome, star-student brother, Byron, she begins to realize that what defines perfection depends on whom you ask. The journey she makes as she struggles to gain confidence in herself changes Virginia's outlook on life, love--and her less-than-perfect family.
