Fat Boy Chronicles
Jimmy Winterock, 14 years old, weighs 187 pounds. School life for Jimmy is a barrage of cruel taunts with the further humiliation of sports. Written as a first person journal addressed to one of his teachers, and inspired by a real story, this book addresses childhood obesity, bullying, and other social problems in a story that is both moving and hopeful.
