A girl mocked for being overweight decides to compete in her favourite TV show.
Jemima Small is funny and smart. She knows a lot of things. Like the fact that she's made of 206 bones, over 600 muscles and trillions of cells. What she doesn't know is how that can be true and yet she can still sometimes feel like nothing. Or how being made to join the school's "special" healthy lifestyle group - aka Fat Club - could feel any less special.
But Jemima also knows also knows that the biggest stars in the universe are the brightest. And maybe it's her time to shine.
NOTE: Empathy Lab 2020 - Secondary List
I can't recommend this enough! A thought provoking must read for both bullied and bullies alike. The characterisation is spot on and with no easy answers or excuses the author shows her skill. Perfect for empathy collections.
