She's fat. She's loud-mouthed. She's pushy. She's opinionated. She's prejudiced. She has a 'creative' way with the truth. She is madly in love with your 16-year-old brother. All the other kids in seventh-grade hate her and she hates them. Her mother has a petition going to try to force your family out of the neighborhood.... And she's your best friend. There's no one like Fat Glenda. She's really not all that bad once you get to know her, though you got wonder did she or did she not put the chicken feet in Mary Lou's watercress sandwich? This book is full of character and characters. It's a delightful story... starting with Sara's trip from California to New York with her hippie parents and all thier stuff... in a garbage truck.
The book "Hey Remember Fat Glenda" was a perfect example on growing up different. The book was very real and thoroughly enjoyable. The characters are very lovable, and the plot and the setting were ideal. I recomend this book to every teenager, male or female. It gives you a different outlook on the way we treat certain people that are different from us. In conclusion I would like to state that Lila Perl was truly remarkable with this creation of this book.
This was by far my most cherished childhood book (I read it well over 100 times). It's a story that I found invaluable while negotiating the process of growing up feeling "different". The overall series was fantastic, but this particular book really inspired me as a child.
