'A beautiful, necessary book' ROXANE GAY.
'Echoes of Margaret Atwood's The Edible Woman' IRISH TIMES.

Growing up in the suburban hell of Misery Saga, Lizzie has never liked the way she looks. Though she dates guys online, she's afraid to send pictures: no-one wants a fat girl. So Lizzie starts to lose weight. With punishing drive, she counts almonds consumed, miles run, pounds dropped, navigating double-edged validation from her mother, her friends, her husband, her reflection in the mirror. But no matter how much she loses, will she ever see herself as anything other than a fat girl?

In her darkly funny, deeply resonant and shocking debut novel, Mona Awad delivers a tender and moving depiction of a lovably difficult young woman whose life is hijacked by her struggle to conform.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'In subject and voice, there are echoes of Margaret Atwood's The Edible Woman and Janice Galloway's The Trick Is to Keep Breathing, but neither has the wit of 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl' Irish Times.
'The title of Mona Awad's debut novel might suggest we're just looking at fat here, but really it's a novel about obsessively hating your own flesh ... Devastating' Emerald Street.
'[A] beautiful, necessary book' Roxane Gay.
'Honest, searing, and necessary ... [13 Ways] peels back the curtain on the struggles of entering womanhood from body image, to relationships, to merely navigating the oh-so-cruel world' Elle.
'Awad deftly captures the many indignities that she - that women - experience around food and weight ... Simultaneously tart and tender, 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl is stunning' Washington Post.
