The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things: By Carolyn Mackler

The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things - Carolyn Mackler

I currently just started reading the book called, The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things, which is about a teenage girl and managing her way through high school with all the boys, drama and self infliction involved. Virginia is somewhat of a heavy set girl who just wants a boy that will treat her the same way he would a skinny, sexy girl. She is currently "seeing" this boy, Froggy. Froggy Welsh the Fourth, to be exact. Virginia is curious about the sexual part of life and uses Froggy to somewhat solve her curiosity. Virginia met this boy at school, and even though they do not speak to one other at school, she secretly invites Froggy over to her room everyday after school. She hasn't yet let Froggy hit "home run", as Virginia is conscious about her figure, but he gets an inch closer everyday. Virginia needs to first learn all of the concepts about everything first before she lets herself go and mess everything up.

I have been coming a long pretty far in the book Between Here and Forever. Abby, the main character, still continues to visit her sister that is in a coma, Tess. She also still continues to have Eli com everyday and talk to Tess believing it will wake her. Abby starts to grow a crush on this new boy Eli, but knows she can not considering is he supposed to be there for Tess' sake. As for all Abby's life she has also been jealous of Tess. I mean, Tess is perfect, who wouldn't be jealous of her. But, under closed doors, Abby tells a different side of the "happy" and "perfect" Tess. There would be times when Tess was a totally different person, not happy Tess, but sad Tess. After Abby began to think it over, she wasn't really that jealous Tess herself, but more jealous that despite all the bad in the world, she could still manage to be happy and positive and people still always loved her. She was a people person, Abby is not.
