You are what you eat…

Cat is smart, sassy, and funny, but thin she is not—until her class science project. That’s when she winds up doing an experiment on herself. Before she knows it, Cat is living—and eating—like the hominids, our earliest human ancestors. True, no chips or television is a bummer, and no car is a pain, but healthful eating and walking everywhere do have their benefits.

As the pounds drop off, the guys pile on. All this newfound male attention is enough to drive a girl crazy! If only she weren’t too busy hating Matt McKinney to notice.

This funny and thoughtful novel explores how girls feel about their bodies and the ways they can best take care of their most precious resource: themselves.

    " Great read, but in the end, just a book about how eating vegan will make you lose weight and losing weight will make your life great. I was disappointed by that. "

    " Think of reading this book as like watching a chick flick movie: yeah, there are cute little moments. Its very sweet and, of course, has a good ending despite all of the problems that need to be resolved. So yes, I enjoyed it. It's a nice sort of fluff read--so, obviously not my style of book--but not bad. Plus, they talked about the kind of food I eat almost the whole time, so, it was a nice change, for once. Cat's character is nice and spunky, which was good. I liked how she didn't need a guy to come to her rescue when she got into a little....hmm...let's say trouble as to avoid spoilers. It was hard to really understand her motivation at first, but the more you read the book, the more obvious it becomes, so at least they don't leave you guessing forever. But what I just can't stand (and this is a personal thing, not Brande's fault) is when the author alludes to some sort of past conflict and then waits forever to tell you what it is, because at that point, I've usually already guessed it and the moment that's supposed to be somewhat touching just turns out anticlimatic. So, real rating, 2.7 or 2.8. But that's just cuz I'm the type of person who, when my friends say "chick flick", thinks "Gladiator". "

    " Fat Cat is about the main character Cat finding herself. She believes a lot about herself, a lot of which has to do with her weight, but she finds out that she just might be a completely different person, and her longtime enemy might not be everything she thinks he is, either. Cat is amazing as a narrator. I loved every single thing about her, I wanted to be her best friend. I saw parts of myself in her, parts of my best friend, parts of my sisters. "
