Description

Virginia Shreves' world implodes again in this long-awaited follow-up to Printz Honoree The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things. Sixteen-year-old Virginia Shreves' life is finally back on course: she's accepted who she is inside and out and is rebuilding her relationship with brother Byron, whose date-rape charge shattered everything. But just as she adjusts to her new normal, her world turns upside down again. Sparks with boyfriend Froggy fade, her best friend bombshells bad news, and then the police arrest Byron. As Virginia struggles to cope, she meets Nate, an artist with his own baggage. The pair vow not to share personal drama. But secrets have a way of coming out, and theirs could ruin everything. Just in time for The Earth, My Butt, and Other BIg Round Things' 15th anniversary, Virginia's hope-filled story of love, friendship, and the beauty in imperfection continues, by acclaimed author Carolyn Mackler.

Professional reviews

"For a second time, narrator Laura Knight Keating excels at portraying Virginia Shreves, an overweight 16-year-old who suffers from body image issues and an inferiority complex within her family. In addition to being in a meaningless relationship, Virginia is the butt of bullying and is confused about her brother's arrest for date rape. Then she meets Sebastian, a handsome artist who is not a "chubby chaser." Keating marks Virginia's initial distrust and then her wonder and pleasure at finding someone who really sees her. Virginia also begins to see with new clarity her family's obsession with appearance and her own worth in the world. Reflecting an interesting plot complication, Keating replicates the tension that comes from Virginia's falling in love with Sebastian in spite of knowing he's the brother of the girl her brother is accused of raping.
