Narrator Katherine Littrell deftly re-creates the sophomore year of Fat Angie and her friends after her sister's death in Iraq. Because she's overweight and lesbian, Angie is targeted for extreme bullying at her high school. Littrell gamely overcomes choppy, unrealistic writing to portray troubled Angie, her angry mother, and diverse friends. Especially moving is Littrell's reading of the final letter from Angie's late sister, which challenges her to confront her fears. Listeners will be delighted as Angie overcomes her demons and slowly gains confidence while traveling in an old RV with friends who substitute for her sister.
