Diary of a Mad Fat Girl

Stephanie McAfee, read by Cassandra Campbell. Tantor Media, unabridged, nine CDs, 11.5 hrs., $39.99 ISBN 978-1-4526-0641-5

Graciela "Ace" Jones has a lot on her plate: her best friend Lilly cancelled their annual trip and won't tell her why; her boss hates her and makes her life miserable; her friend Chloe is married to a controlling, abusive man; and Ace's own love life is on the skids since her jealousy and insecurity lead to her break-up with love-of-her-life Mason. Here, Campbell turns in a winning performance, ably capturing Ace's unique voice and bringing her to life. The narrator also creates distinctive voices for other characters, including the prickly principal; the abusive husband; and mousy, nervous Chloe. A NAL paperback. (Feb.)
