Ct family But that’s before a shocking phone call and a horrifying allegation about her rugby star brother changes everything With irreverent humor and surprising gravity Carolyn Mackle Realistic characters Well written Virginia could be someone you actually know Virginia could even be you Anyone who's ever been given a variation of the criticism You could be pretty if and anyone who was chubby in high school and looked down on for it will be able to greatly empathize with Virginia One thing that struck a note of reality with me was Virginia's mother I used to teach and had a student who transferred to my school a couple of months into the school year She was in one of my classes Her transfer grades were excellent all As and Bs Remarks and comments in her file from previous teachers indicated she was also well behaved and nice to be around All that changed when she came to the school where I was teaching Her mother had gone back to work as a child pyschologist overseeing an entire hospital based clinic for troubled teens The mother was so focused on her work and so convinced her two children were perfect that when her son and daughter both began acting out at school the woman refused to believe it was her children She kept trying to blame everyone else She actually said in a conference with one of the vice principals and me that her daughter was NEVER a problem until she came to us and clearly we had it out for her child Later that vice principal told me that before I arrived for the meeting he'd mentioned that it wasn't just big behaviors and failing grades that was getting the girl in trouble but small things as well such as gum chewing The mother stood there hotly denying her daughter even chewed gum while the girl stood right beside her blowing huge pink bubbles and popping them Reading the constant denial and unwillingness to see her children's imperfections that Virginia's mother displays throughout the book reminded me so much of this woman I met years ago Another theme that strikes a reality note is Virginia turning her anger onto herself both physically and mentally Anyone who's ever pinched hit cut or burned themselves and had thoughts of If only I weren't fatstupiduglyshorttalletc will truly grasp the torment Virginia puts herself throughAn excellent book that I highly recommend
