    This book reminded why I love reading so much I learned so many new things without being banged over the head with textbook mumbo jumbo I almost fell out of chair when she talked about the Tarahumara indians it s a joke in my family Cat is well fat and is carrying around a lot of resentment She is smart and she has good friends but again she s fat Every year she enters the science fair and this year she plans to beat Matt no matter what happens The experiment that she takes on is pretty This book reminded why I love reading so much I learned so many new things without being banged over the head with textbook mumbo jumbo I almost fell out of chair when she talked about the Tarahumara indians it s a joke in my family Cat is well fat and is carrying around a lot of resentment She is smart and she has good friends but again she s fat Every year she enters the science fair and this year she plans to beat Matt no matter what happens The experiment that she takes on is pretty extreme She is going to eat like the caveman did and limit her access to modern technology With her diet of diet coke and chips and her habits of a modern day person this will be no easy task.Slowly we see her start to lose weight and all the changes that comes with that We come later to find out exactly what is the huge grudge she has against Matt, and get to see her attempts to test the waters with guys I laughed so much when I read this story, and zipped through it like there was no tomorrow Along her journey you can tell she feels dare she say it pretty and not only that buthappy than she can remember I actually felt compelled to take a look at what kind of junk I d been putting in my own body and how dependent we all are on technology Sometimes you have to turn everything off No interent, TV, phones and just really think Though I could never become a vegertarian they had some good points but I love eating juicy burgers way too much Good books make you analyze your own life and it did just that I got kind of annoyed at Cat sometimes though The grudge she is holding is justified in a way I think she was a little too hung up on it She kept saying traitor and you betrayed me and well I just can t see a teenager doing that They d be like there are such scum insertcolorful language here There was a bit of that, but I think Cat made it out to be worst as the years went by I m not saying what Matt did wasn t hurtful but I m surprised how long she kept hating him I think it s because it happened in her middle school years very difficult time growing up and she liked him so it hurt that muchThat aside though this book is worthy of anyone s time to see sometimes that we are the only ones in they way of our own lives

    Happy sigh This was absolutely fabulous If I try to come up with anything I didn t like about this book I m drawing a total blank Our narrator Cat is awesome, she s smart and witty and she made me laugh out loud at regular intervals throughout the entire book I also loved that even when her pounds melted away and she regained some self confidence she stayed true to herself I kind of expected the story to go like they all do and was prepared for Cat to turn into a total bitch but luckily thi Happy sigh This was absolutely fabulous If I try to come up with anything I didn t like about this book I m drawing a total blank Our narrator Cat is awesome, she s smart and witty and she made me laugh out loud at regular intervals throughout the entire book I also loved that even when her pounds melted away and she regained some self confidence she stayed true to herself I kind of expected the story to go like they all do and was prepared for Cat to turn into a total bitch but luckily this never happened Sure, she experimented a little with her sexuality and how she could influence the male population but she always stayed the same loveable science geek who doesn t really care about make up and clothes and wants guys to like her for her personality and not for her looks She stayed the sweet girl who s loyal to her friends and cares about her family.This was one of those books I simply couldn t put down, the plot captivated my attention from cover to cover and when I realized that the story drew to a close I got really sad because I didn t want to say goodbye to all these great characters just yet As I already said, Cat herself is awesome but so are her friends Amanda and Jordan and also Matt I know, what he did back then was awful but he was only thirteen and at this young age you sometimes just do stupid things like that and I actually found myself feeling bad for him because it was just so obvious that he had absolutely no clue what he had done I also thought the whole situation with him and Cat was a realistic scenario I remember being that young and not having the guts yet to stand by my opinion, no matter what the others thought or said and I also know how I didn t confront friends about stuff like this The fact that Cat and Amanda were almost running a restaurant by themselves, on the other hand, struck me as a tad bit unrealistic but didn t really bother me The additional information on how to eat healthy was interesting as well, though I must say that the author was not exactly subtle about her pro vegetarian message Luckily it was still within tolerable limits.What I probably liked best about this one was the love story It was the kind of romance that makes you grin like a fool and feel warm all over This is definitely a book I m going to re read someday Loved it

    Fat Cat is what I call a light YA story done right It s not overly depressing being an issue book and all that , or immature, or oversexed It is story of an overweight girl who turns to healthy lifestyle as a part of her science project and in the process of getting her body in shape, gets her inner self in shape too Cat is an extremely likable character In spite of her hang ups that she tries to eat, she is a smart and fun girl, a great friend and daughter.You will not find drugs, al Fat Cat is what I call a light YA story done right It s not overly depressing being an issue book and all that , or immature, or oversexed It is story of an overweight girl who turns to healthy lifestyle as a part of her science project and in the process of getting her body in shape, gets her inner self in shape too Cat is an extremely likable character In spite of her hang ups that she tries to eat, she is a smart and fun girl, a great friend and daughter.You will not find drugs, alcohol or promiscuity in this book and it is a great relief It seems to be some kind of standard these days to portray teenage kids as jaded and vile creatures and it s a pleasure to finally read a book about normal young adults, young adults I used to hang around not that long ago What you will find instead is this great messages about eating and leaving healthy, responsible sexuality, value of friends and a lesson about not getting stuck on what people say or do behind your back and being a guide of your own destiny and happiness.The push for vegetarian life style gets at times a little too heavy, but overall the book manages to stay away from being preachy and is simply a quick, fun read about health, friendship, with a little bit of teenage angsty romance thrown in

    Definitely an inspiring and motivating story as the main character embarks on an ambitious experiment to see what would happen if she cut out processed food, artificial sweeteners, technology and motorized transportation It was amazing to see Cat morph into a new person both in body and attitude and refreshing to hear her tell her story in such an inspiring and snarky voice I had a great time following her through her journey.About the book Catherine Locke and Matt McKinney have been arch ene Definitely an inspiring and motivating story as the main character embarks on an ambitious experiment to see what would happen if she cut out processed food, artificial sweeteners, technology and motorized transportation It was amazing to see Cat morph into a new person both in body and attitude and refreshing to hear her tell her story in such an inspiring and snarky voice I had a great time following her through her journey.About the book Catherine Locke and Matt McKinney have been arch enemies for over four years It all happened the day she displaced her best friend in a science fair competition by taking first place and hearing him say something horrible about her to another student It s now their junior year in high school, and she vows to take revenge and teach Matt a lesson As part of her science project, she aims to take the prize once again and as part of her experiment she goes on a strict eating regimen to lose the weight that earned her the title Fat Cat.I loved Cat s voice because she sassy, smart and completing honest The journaling that included her progress was interesting to read and it was amazing to see how the food we eat and the habits we practice affect our body and mind Definitely recommend this book as I enjoyed it much

    This book was adorable And sexy Adorably sexy I m so pleased with having picked this up I found it a little slow at times, which is why I gave it a four instead of a five, but overall I adored this read Definitely recommend to anyone searching for a witty contemporary.

    Honestly This was garbage It spins a message of self acceptance that comes only after the main character has literally transformed her physical appearance and as a direct result gained the affections of her true love.The fact that Matt once called Cat UGH, I KNOW fat when they were 13 and that she held an active grudge against him and refused to speak to him for over three years, had NOTHING to do with the fact that she wanted to lose weight Riiiiight.The author tries to make the reader bel Honestly This was garbage It spins a message of self acceptance that comes only after the main character has literally transformed her physical appearance and as a direct result gained the affections of her true love.The fact that Matt once called Cat UGH, I KNOW fat when they were 13 and that she held an active grudge against him and refused to speak to him for over three years, had NOTHING to do with the fact that she wanted to lose weight Riiiiight.The author tries to make the reader believe that science whiz Cat wants to lose weight as part of a NATIONAL science fair project becausescience to show how much people have changed since they were Neanderthals Yeah, it doesn t make sense You re telling me that the teacher of this science class that the reader is made to believe is the BEST and intimidating and pushes his students readily accepts the premise of, lol I want to diet for school, as a science fair project Again, for the NATIONAL LEVEL Ok, suspending my disbelief for that absolutely insane premise, Cat is TERRIBLE at going through with this actual project That she made the rules for Sigh The project literally, immediately, on day 1 starts to unravel, but that s ok because Cat just continues to change the rules She s not supposed to use technology phones cars, etc , yet she constantly is using phones cars, etc but justifying it because she needs to talk to a boy or go to the mall Also, she was only supposed to eat what Neanderthals ate, meaning whole grains, nuts, berries, vegetables, etc Instead, again, after DAY ONE, this is too impossible granted, it would be hard but crumbling on day one and so Cat once again bends the rules to an absurd level She eats oatmeal with milk every day, she makes bread, she has pizza, she has muffins, she has SO MANY CARBS You know what they didn t have in Neanderthal times Bread Eggs Milk Sugar A blender A stove So Cat is actually just going on a diet where she eliminates processed sugar, soda and chocolate and well, that s pretty much it The book takes an incredibly sanctimonious turn preaching constantly about a healthy lifestyle and how everyone should eat this way so that people don t die yes, it actually says we will all die if we do not change how we eat Now, I am not opposed to a healthy eating lifestyle it s fantastic willthan likely prolong your life expectancy But I m not going to write a novel trying to guilt it s readers into living that way under the guise and promise of getting your crush and a super hot bod at the end of it all.The author tries to convince the reader that Cat is only doing this for herself and to better her life, which she is most certainly not as she herself will repeatedly tell the reader Sure, she has moments where she tries to convince herself that it has nothing to do with boys but, good Lord, does it but it all comes down to Matt in the end Change everything about your physical appearance and people will like you What a horrible message for young girls, or people in general

    I finished this book in one day so that must say something about it It was afast pace book even though there wasn t suspense or action in it The chapters are fairly short and the writing style is modern and easy In the first half of the book I was sure I was going to give it 5 stars because Cat was so funny, smart and just a really great girl with so much drive she is definitely into science The whole eating and being like cavemen thing was informative I learned a good amount and few I finished this book in one day so that must say something about it It was afast pace book even though there wasn t suspense or action in it The chapters are fairly short and the writing style is modern and easy In the first half of the book I was sure I was going to give it 5 stars because Cat was so funny, smart and just a really great girl with so much drive she is definitely into science The whole eating and being like cavemen thing was informative I learned a good amount and few of the things she said I already knew so that was reassuring I liked her friends and how they really seemed to care about Cat I really loved the fact that Cat tries to develop a good relationship with her little brother and doesn t hate her parents Cat makes some good points about eating better and all that but low and behold I still ate chicken soup that same day that I finished it I still eat meat too The second half I didn t like as much as the first because of her guy problems I really shouldn t go any further about it but I ll say that she wasn t too smart about it she may be smart about science but boys are not her forte She makes thingscomplicated when they come into the picture, but she does what s right in the end She harbors this huge grudge on one boy who did something that terribly hurts Cat s feeling when she was in the seventh grade I think You find out what he did and I ll say that it was pretty hurtful However, Cat is like what 17 She still hasn t got over it even a little I probably wouldn t like the guy either but I wouldn t loathe him for years to come You d think with how much she hated him he killed her dog or something he didn t by the way Given the fact that I didn t completely like Cat s love life in the second half of the book I still really liked it and would absolutely read it again

    Not the genre I usually read, but I found this book buried somewhere on my shelves and decided to read it again I once got it as a gift when I was a teenager and remembered to like it back then Fat Cat deals with many topics health, food, love, being lovesick, friendship and even a bit mobbing And it does so in a nice way the messages are clear, but the book doesn t force its opinions on the reader.I enjoyed that I could actually learn something about eating healthy and how it affects the Not the genre I usually read, but I found this book buried somewhere on my shelves and decided to read it again I once got it as a gift when I was a teenager and remembered to like it back then Fat Cat deals with many topics health, food, love, being lovesick, friendship and even a bit mobbing And it does so in a nice way the messages are clear, but the book doesn t force its opinions on the reader.I enjoyed that I could actually learn something about eating healthy and how it affects the body It was all very understandable, despite having a scientific background The writing style is also fluent and easy to follow, the chapters are very short and it was a quick read I liked how straightforward Cat, the main character, was at least for most of the time She was very determined about her project I also liked her best friend Amanda, they really read like best friends they can tell each other everything and complete each other in many ways cause their personalities are quite different The male characters though could ve beenfleshed out There s also a lot of romance in here actually, the farther we get into the book, theromance heavy it gets Towards the end, it was a bit much Cat suddenly was all about her feelings and it also affected her project I get love and all that comes with it is an important topic for the indented target group for this book though, and just because I didn t like it doesn t mean you won t either.Now, one last note this book is about Cat s journey She thinks she s too fat at the beginning, she s unhappy with her body and she wants to change something about it This is also an important topic But the book in no way tells you that you should act in the same way It depends on you If you re unhappy with your body image, this book might be a great inspiration But if you re happy with how you look even if some people may consider you fat that s totally fine too In conclusion, Fat Cat was a quick and enjoyable read It was funny at times but had also depth I think it s a great book for teenagers who struggle with things like body image and feelings and I would recommend it for 12 years and up

    I finished this book in one day so that must say something about it It was afast pace book even though there wasn t suspense or action in it The chapters are fairly short and the writing style is modern and easy In the first half of the book I was sure I was going to give it 5 stars because Cat was so funny, smart and just a really great girl with so much drive she is definitely into science The whole eating and being like cavemen thing was informative I learned a good amount and few I finished this book in one day so that must say something about it It was afast pace book even though there wasn t suspense or action in it The chapters are fairly short and the writing style is modern and easy In the first half of the book I was sure I was going to give it 5 stars because Cat was so funny, smart and just a really great girl with so much drive she is definitely into science The whole eating and being like cavemen thing was informative I learned a good amount and few of the things she said I already knew so that was reassuring I liked her friends and how they really seemed to care about Cat I really loved the fact that Cat tries to develop a good relationship with her little brother and doesn t hate her parents Cat makes some good points about eating better and all that but low and behold I still ate chicken soup that same day that I finished it I still eat meat too The second half I didn t like as much as the first because of her guy problems I really shouldn t go any further about it but I ll say that she wasn t too smart about it she may be smart about science but boys are not her forte She makes thingscomplicated when they come into the picture, but she does what s right in the end She harbors this huge grudge on one boy who did something that terribly hurts Cat s feeling when she was in the seventh grade I think You find out what he did and I ll say that it was pretty hurtful However, Cat is like what 17 She still hasn t got over it even a little I probably wouldn t like the guy either but I wouldn t loathe him for years to come You d think with how much she hated him he killed her dog or something he didn t by the way Given the fact that I didn t completely like Cat s love life in the second half of the book I still really liked it and would absolutely read it again

    Not the genre I usually read, but I found this book buried somewhere on my shelves and decided to read it again I once got it as a gift when I was a teenager and remembered to like it back then Fat Cat deals with many topics health, food, love, being lovesick, friendship and even a bit mobbing And it does so in a nice way the messages are clear, but the book doesn t force its opinions on the reader.I enjoyed that I could actually learn something about eating healthy and how it affects the Not the genre I usually read, but I found this book buried somewhere on my shelves and decided to read it again I once got it as a gift when I was a teenager and remembered to like it back then Fat Cat deals with many topics health, food, love, being lovesick, friendship and even a bit mobbing And it does so in a nice way the messages are clear, but the book doesn t force its opinions on the reader.I enjoyed that I could actually learn something about eating healthy and how it affects the body It was all very understandable, despite having a scientific background The writing style is also fluent and easy to follow, the chapters are very short and it was a quick read I liked how straightforward Cat, the main character, was at least for most of the time She was very determined about her project I also liked her best friend Amanda, they really read like best friends they can tell each other everything and complete each other in many ways cause their personalities are quite different The male characters though could ve beenfleshed out There s also a lot of romance in here actually, the farther we get into the book, theromance heavy it gets Towards the end, it was a bit much Cat suddenly was all about her feelings and it also affected her project I get love and all that comes with it is an important topic for the indented target group for this book though, and just because I didn t like it doesn t mean you won t either.Now, one last note this book is about Cat s journey She thinks she s too fat at the beginning, she s unhappy with her body and she wants to change something about it This is also an important topic But the book in no way tells you that you should act in the same way It depends on you If you re unhappy with your body image, this book might be a great inspiration But if you re happy with how you look even if some people may consider you fat that s totally fine too In conclusion, Fat Cat was a quick and enjoyable read It was funny at times but had also depth I think it s a great book for teenagers who struggle with things like body image and feelings and I would recommend it for 12 years and up
