From the back of the book "COMING OF AGE SERIES--It's the summer of drinking and driving, disco and diets, fake IDs and geology, and fat 17-year-old Char is wondering if she is animal, vegetable, or mineral. What does it mean when your best friend French-braids your hair, kisses you on the lips, and leaves town? Char gets a summer job in a nursing home, and meets people with bodies and abilities as various as the textures of the rock her friend Felice collects.

'Fat Girl Dances with Rocks' is a novel about the many shapes of beauty: the fold of a belly, the green swelling of seedlings, the sharp edges of granite, obsidian, and flint. 'Fat Girl Dances with Rocks' is a coming of age story. It is coming out story, and for Char, it is a story of of coming into her own body--all the way to her edges of her skin.
