This bittersweet and mordantly funny take on teenage self-awareness and angst, is the story of Anne whose self-worth fluctuates with the success or failure of her weight control regimens. As an adult, Anne looks back on a series of fumbling romances and family dysfunction and judges herself wanting. The reader sees her as a witty and perceptive observer of the human scene. If only we could convince Anne. Recommended!
