Victoria Dawson has always felt out of place in her family, especially in body-conscious L.A. Her father, Jim, is tall and slender, and her mother, Christina, is a fine-boned, dark-haired beauty. Both are self-centered, outspoken, and disappointed by their daughter's looks. While her parents and sister can eat anything and not gain an ounce, Victoria must watch everything she eats, as well as endure her father's belittling comments about her body and see her academic achievements go unacknowledged. Ice cream and oversized helpings of all the wrong foods give her comfort, but only briefly. The one thing she knows is that she has to get away from home, and after college in Chicago, she moves to New York City. Behind Victoria is a lifetime of hurt and neglect she has tried to forget, and even ice cream can no longer dull the pain. Ahead is a challenge and a risk: to accept herself as she is, celebrate it, and claim the victories she has fought so hard for and deserves. Big girl or not, she is terrific and discovers that herself.

The characters: 100% recycled cardboard. The plot: Not much. About 1/3 consists of the heroine droning on about her parents’ mistreatment of her in the same simple, boring words, over and over. I was looking for light entertainment, but didn’t find a single spark of energy or effort in this novel. It should have been titled Big Money because the cash value of the author's name must have been the whole purpose in publishing it.

Do you like bullies? Do you like people who cower before family memebers? Do you like people who lack self respect? Do you cherish envy? Then you'll love Big Girl. 1 of 10 stars.
