Summary
Virginia Shreves is insecure -- and comparing herself to the tall, dark, and slender over-achievers who make up the rest of her family doesn't help. Add in even more criticism than usual from her exercise-obsessed mom and the fact that Virginia's best friend has moved away, and it's sure be a bad year of epic proportions. Or is it? This funny, sexy, no-holds-barred story of a girl who's about to learn that her "perfect" family isn't so perfect. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
