    Not Recommended

    Such a shallow novel- it pushes the point of 'loving one's self' but ultimately fails to do just that for it's main character.

    Great Read

    Even since 5th grade when Ryan was labeled a FAT GIRL at cheerleading camp, things have been a bit rocky. While she may not have been that fat then, the pounds have creeped on since her brother's sickness. Now she's about to start her senior year of high school without her BFFF (best fat friend forever) who is spending the first semester in CA with her dad. Now Ryan's trying to work out her issues, including her feelings for her used to be best guy friend, her anger against her mother and her brother, and coming to terms with the song that her ex-boyfriend (now a rockstar on the cover of Rolling Stone) wrote for her. Can she wrap her head around everything and still manage to stay true to herself?

    Sometimes we need to read chick lit. Chick lit books are so much fun to read. Especially the ones where the girl goes from ugly duckling to swan metaphorically or meets Prince Charming after round after round of bad luck with other men. Pair a read like that with a lounge chair and a pool and your day is made. If you are looking for good chick lit, you should try Jo Edwards. She writes chick lit for both teens and adults. <BR/><BR/>I just finished her newest book for teens, GO FIGURE. It was easy to read - I finished it in just a couple of hours. It was an entertaining romp about a fat girl named Ryan Burke who, despite the extra baggage she carries, is a great girl who deserves to have everything that ¿skinny¿ girls get. Jo Edwards shows us through Ryan's voice what it means it to be <BR/>overweight in the world today.<BR/><BR/>In 6th grade she weighed 128 pounds ¿¿" not the ideal weight for being a cheerleader. She was constantly teased, which really made her self-esteem plummet. Instead of doing something positive about her weight, nipping it in the bud, she let it spiral upward and out of control. It is so easy to hide behind the fat, which Ryan does throughout high school. Insecurities can do you in. Yet she still sits at the popular table at lunch. This just goes to show that fat girls can be popular; fat girls can have lots of friends. <BR/><BR/>It is the boyfriend area that Ryan doesn't excel in. Most of the relationships that she has been in, not that there were that many, the fat issue hindered things from progressing. Unfortunately, fat girls don't get the hot guys. Maybe in a fairy tale it does but not in real life. The longest relationship she had was with a guy who is now a big shot celebrity. He went from geek to sheik. He's been on the cover of Rolling Stone and you can read about him in the celebrity gossip columns. <BR/><BR/>Whether fat or thin, Ryan is going to make the most of her senior year. She has a lot going for her; besides being funny, smart, and popular, Ryan just got accepted into a prestigious photography class with a famous photographer. Interestingly, the ¿boy next door¿ turned ¿hunk when he got to high school¿ is in the same class. Eons ago, they used to be best friends but now move in different circles. <BR/><BR/>Can this class turn two old friends into something more? Can she make peace with her size and live her life to the fullest? You will have to read the book to find out.

    Go figure was such an incredible book. It tells the story of a 'fat' girl, and the struggles she goes through with life and more importantly, herself. The ending of this book made me smile and gave me the biggest pleasure. This is such a great book, i suggest you pick it up and read it!

    Amazing. Epitomization of the Overweight Girl

    I read it in one day with only a few 5 minute breaks moving from class to class. I enjoyed every second of it and ignored my teachers to finish it. =] It was as if I had told the author my story and they had recorded it, rewrote with different details, and then published it. It was great and it made me feel better. I highly recommend it.
