Fat Boy Chronicles
BY DIANE LANG AND MICHAEL BUCHANAN
At age fourteen, Jimmy Winterpock weighs 187 pounds. School life for Jimmy is a barrage of cruel taunts with the further humiliation of sports. Written as a first person journal addressed to one of his teachers, and inspired by a real story, this book addresses childhood obesity, bullying, and other social problems in a story that is both moving and hopeful. Ages 12 and up.
