Lizzie has never liked the way she looks. She starts dating guys online, but she's afraid to send pictures: she knows no one would want her if they could really see her. So she starts to lose weight. With punishing drive, she counts almonds consumed, miles logged, pounds dropped. She grows up and gets thin, navigating double-edged validation from her mother, her friends, her husband, her reflection. No matter how much she loses, will she ever see herself as anything other than a fat girl? A brilliant, hilarious, and at times shocking debut that skewers the body imagea€"obsessed culture, 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl delivers a tender and moving depiction of a lovably difficult young woman whose life is hijacked by her struggle to conform.
