The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler


Fifteen-year-old Virginia Shreves has a larger-than-average body and a plus-size inferiority complex, especially when she compares herself to her slim, brilliant, picture-perfect family. But that’s before a shocking phone call — and a horrifying allegation — about her rugby-star brother changes everything. With irreverent humor and surprising gravity, Carolyn Mackler creates an endearingly blunt heroine who speaks to every teen who struggles with family expectations, and proves that the most impressive achievement is to be true to yourself.


Why didn’t I read this book sooner? Really, why didn’t somebody nag me endlessly to read it? It is amazing.
I’m really not sure how to sum up my feeling towards this book into words. I mean, I know that I loved it. I know that is means something to me. And I know that I think everyone should read it.
Virginia is a character that a lot of people can relate to and feel sympathy for. She is a big girl with a big personality, and I loved her. Along with having to deal with her own personally issues, Virginia also has to deal with her brother date raping someone and each member of her family in their own personal crisis.
I admire her for breaking free of the mold that her mother was trying to push her to fit into. She stood up for herself, which is really important.
The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things is a book that every girl should read. Even if you personally can’t relate to Virginia, the lessons are still wonderful and the writing is just as great.
