The Earth, My Butt, And Other Big Round Things

Carolyn Mackler

This irreverent, but touching tale is a 2004 Michael L. Printz Award Honor Book by acclaimed author Carolyn Mackler. Fifteen-year-old Virginia Shreves is overweight and doesn’t have many friends, but wants to be like her family—picture perfect. What she knows about her family, however, slowly begins to change after one tragic phone call. “The heroine’s transformation into someone who finds her own style and speaks her own mind is believable and worthy of applause.”—Publishers Weekly
