Can we just say how funny this book is? This is laugh out loud, rolling on the carpet floor getting a 3rd degree burn. Allen Zadoff gave the perfect balance of an emotional wrenching book and a hilarious outspoken book.
While this book is more towards the male audience with talks of football, blenching, how to lay a girl, theres a bit for us ladies as well&that is if you enjoy cooking&or eating actually.
Andrew, Andy, is not the fattest kid in school but the second which makes it way worst. He tries but falls at trying to find his place in school. Hes kind good at being a diplomat in the Model UN but when April catches Andys eyes hes determined to reach it to the top of the high school pyramidfootball player. Which it turns out, Andys actually good at. But Andy can only pick one side, the Model UN and his skinny best friend Ethan or the football players and April the cheerleader. Andy embarks on a journey of self finding, and weight issues that seems to be a selective generic trait in his family.
This book gives the reader an addiction that you cannot be contained until the entire novel is devoured. It touches the bases of weight issues, family problems, little sister phobia, high school crushes, high school lessons all with an incredulous feeling that Andy cannot believe hes actually popular&sort of. While Andy doesnt lose like 100 pounds in the book, he becomes healthier with the help of football and learns to use his largeness to the fullest potential.
The family issues are the result of a nasty divorce from an equally nasty affair. Andy tries to reconnect with the dad and through football he does. His father admits that whichever he chooses, to quit or to continue, hes proud of Andy.
Andy learns that to not put so much faith on just one man especially when it comes to love as he finds out with April&and O. Douglass. He grows, develops, understands, and lives on.
Overall: An amazing novel that tackles the issue of weight like never before.
