what's the deal with this fat business? My friend is going on an out of control diet and this whole fat business is working my last nerves. Look at queen latifah for lord's sake.

More to the book that fat.

The book if you have not finished it has a great deal more to it than just Zachary being fat. It about being a friend and living in a community.

I loved this book. I just finished it and was awed by the author's simplistic, yet, lyrical language. The story's layers are wonderfully interwoven, and I couldn't help but feel a certain partialness to each of the characters. This book has both highs and lows. I found myself both laughing at Cal's boyish antics, and crying at the "rosebush scene". I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a story that has true heart.
