Big Girl Small by Rachel DeWoskin

Big Girl Small is a novel for women of all ages; for every girl who is, or was, a teenager. Everybody needs a friend like Judy. She is whip-smart, hilarious, and her story is so real. She’s a wonderful singer, full of big dreams for a big future—and she’s a dwarf. But why is she hiding out in a seedy motel on the edge of town? Who are her friends? And why can’t she face her family?

Big Girl Small is a gut-wrenching teen-tragedy told with laugh-out-loud humour. Every reader will recognise the anxiety of trying to be different, to be the same, to find out who you are and what your hormones are doing, and what you might want to do in the future. Most of us don’t really know, and this brave novel shows us that’s just fine.  Penguin Books

Big Girl Small is a scathingly funny and moving book about dreams and reality, at once light on its feet and unwaveringly serious. Good Reads
