Food, Girls, and Other Things I Can't Have
by Allen Zadoff.

Life used to be so simple for Andrew Zansky–hang with the Model UN guys, avoid gym class, and eat and eat and eat. He’s used to not fitting in: into his family, his sports-crazed school, or his size 48 pants.

But not anymore. Andrew just met April, the new girl at school and the instant love of his life! He wants to find a way to win her over, but how? When O. Douglas, the heartthrob quarterback and high-school legend, saves him from getting beaten up by the school bully, Andrew sees his chance to get in with the football squad.

Is it possible to reinvent yourself in the middle of high school? Andrew is willing to try. But he’s going to have to make some changes. Fast.

Can a funny fat kid be friends with a football superstar? Can he win over the Girl of his Dreams? Can he find a way to get his mom and dad back together?

How far should you go to be the person you really want to be?

Andrew is about to find out.



It's funny, initially I was never really interested in this book at all. But after seeing like two great reviews of it I was. Plus I want to see what kind of changes he has to make to become more fit because lately I've been obsessing over what I eat.


Release Date: September 8, 2009 (eww a day before school starts)

This book sounds very good! I'll to get a copy and add it to my TBR pile. I'm loving the books that look at the "unpopular" kids and whether they should change to fit in etc.

And this book comes out the day my school starts back!
