The medias perfect faces, societal expectations, family concerns, and primitive socialization rituals collide with the already horrendous physical and emotional tribulations of adolescence to drive Calvin Little over the edge.

Hell stop at nothing to become beautiful and weightless, but he must conceal his battle with what the world has come to know as a girls disease. Is there redemption in social acceptance, in romantic love, in escaping gravity? Is it enough to learn to love yourself? Calvins journey is told in a sequence of poems steeped in both the physical and psychological worlds, in voices that range from the bawdy to the elegiac.

In The Fat Kid, Calvin Little becomes the ideal antihero for a shallow culture obsessed with thin.
