Summary
Dara Cohen, a junior pageant princess turned chubby teenager, reconnects with an estranged older sister whom her parents have disowned for mysterious reasons
Summary
Former "Little Miss Maine" Dara Cohen isn't so little anymore; she's now a plus-sized teen and has no problem with that fact. But when she dares to comment on society's obsession with thinness in a video that she makes for her English class, she gets in major trouble at school and with her parents. Fed up, Dara goes to visit her estranged sister Rachel, whom she's never met, at the rural collective (and goat farm) where Rachel lives and works -- and gets a whole new perspective on life. Fans of novels that dredge up family secrets and poignant emotions, as well as anyone looking for fiction that features GLBT characters, will enjoy this ultimately feel-good read. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
