Fat Angie by e.E. Charlton-Trujillo

$8.27

Fat Angie by filmmaker and writer E.E. Charlton-Trujillo. Children’s fiction about a teen having tough times at home and school.

“A hard-hitting third novel that swings between incredibly painful low moments and hard-won victories.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Angie is broken–by her can’t-be-bothered mother, by her high-school tormenters, and by being the only one who thinks her varsity-athlete-turned-war-hero sister is still alive. Having failed to kill herself–in front of a gym full of kids–Angie’s back at high school just trying to make it through each day. That is, until the arrival of KC Romance, a girl who knows too well that the package doesn’t always match what’s inside. With an offbeat sensibility and mean girls to rival a horror classic, this darkly comic anti-romantic romance will appeal to anyone who likes entertaining and meaningful fiction.

Description

Angie’s sister was captured in Iraq, she’s the laughingstock at school, and her therapist tells her to count instead of eat. Can a daring new girl in her life really change anything?

Angie is broken by her mother who can’t be bothered, by tormenting high schoolers, and by being the only one who thinks her sister is still alive. Hiding under a mountain of junk food hasn’t kept the pain away. Having tried suicide, in front of a gym full of kids, she’s back at high school just trying to make it through each day.

 That is, until the arrival of KC Romance, the kind of girl who doesn’t exist in Dryfalls, Ohio. A girl who never sees her as Fat Angie, and who knows too well that the package doesn’t always match what’s inside. With an offbeat sensibility, mean girls, and characters both outrageous and touching, this darkly comic anti-romantic romance will appeal to anyone who likes entertaining and meaningful fiction.

 

E_E_Charlton-Trujillo author of Fat Angiee.E. Charlton-Trujillo is a filmmaker and writer from the small South Texas town of Mathis, where teens drove in circles around the Pizza Hut for fun on Friday nights after football games. Football in Texas is everything, and has found its way into her films and storytelling.

Even though she was adopted at birth, e.E. Charlton-Trujillo has always known her Hispanic heritage and was raised to own Hispanic history both good and the bad.

Fat Angie is her third novel. Three days into the release, there was talk of a feature film. Fingers crossed because that would be fantastic!
