Kat is like every other 14 year old girl, except she is struggling to lose weight. It is the summer before her freshman year in high school and she wants to enter school as a new person, with a brand new body.
This is cute - nothing earth shattering - just cute. This is cataloged at our library as a Y (Young Adult) and this is definitely *NOT* Young Adult. I would say it is perfect for any middle grade girl (4-6). I do bristle a bit at the fact that her self esteem is wrapped up in losing weight but Kat does come to the conclusion that she has to do this for herself NOT to get the guy...so there is a plus.
