"Cat is sassy, smart, funny, and, well, fat. Then she gets an assignment for a science project. She gets a picture of hominids and decides to eat and live just like them. Going without junk food, cars, and electronics can be a bummer, but Cat starts to really live. Cat is starting to get healthy and boys are starting to notice. She has no experience with boys, and she is too busy hating Matt McKinney to really notice anything. Can she get over being Fat Cat and become just Cat?
"I love Cat. I could relate to her so much. I have had weight problems for my whole life. She also got over how she looked and realized that other things were important. Jordan and Amanda were cute together. They were sweet and wonderful friends. The plot was so strong. It was interesting and I read it in about a day. This book was really original and the book was not just about weight loss, but loving yourself. Brande is an amazing writer and I can not wait for more books from her. Fat Cat is the kind of book that is a must read. It has such a strong message that anyone can all relate to." --Sarah
