"13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl" tells the story of Lizzie, a young woman obsessed with the way she looks and how much she weighs.
"'Fat girl' is not so much a problem of flesh," says novelist Mona Awad, "it's more of a state of mind that you can inhabit long after any transformations you make to your body."
- "A young woman navigates uneasy relationships with herself, her weight, and the world in Awad’s painfully raw — and bitingly funny — debut."
- "When we went against the universe was at the McDonald’s on the corner of Wolfedale and Mercer. On a sunny afternoon. Mel and I hate sunny afternoons. Especially here in Misery Saga, which is what you’re allowed to call Mississauga if you live there."
