Lots of humorous dialogue

I really liked this book! It was an easy to read page turner--read it in 2 days which is a little unusual for me! The leading character is a witty overweight girl who has a fondness for science. I found the dialogue with her friends to be very engaging. There is a little talk about sex, and the characters are around 17 years old. Her journey to reinvent herself is fun and challenging, as is the surprising underlying incentive to do so.

Good for teens.

Loved this book and thought the kids at my school would like it because it deals with boy-girl issues and friendship. The main character reinvents herself for a science project and along the way resolves the issues that she has with her best guy friend.
