9780061672866: Moose: A Memoir

Stephanie Klein was an eighth grader with a weight problem. It was a problem at school, where the boys called her "Moose," and it was a problem at home, where her father reminded her, "No one likes fat girls." After many frustrating sessions with a nutritionist known as the fat doctor of Roslyn Heights, Long Island, Klein's parents enrolled her for a summer at fat camp. Determined to return to school thin and popular, without her "lard arms" and "puckered ham," Stephanie embarked on a memorable journey that would shape more than just her body. It would shape her life.

Review:

“Candid . . . inspiring . . . With vivid characterizations, spot-on locale descriptions and sly jokes at her own expense, Klein offers an original and touching take on the all-too-common problem of childhood obesity.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“The memoir, which mixes painful revelations with amusing anecdotes, teems with details, like the sixth-grade Spanish class in which the teacher told students to identify themselves as fat or thin.” (New York Times)

“A candid, touching memoir . . . It’ll make you laugh—and cry.” (hungry-girl.com)

“Klein intersperses surprisingly touching observations with crackling, punny lexicon. Grade: A–” (Entertainment Weekly, for Straight Up and Dirty)

“Klein is a talented writer who tells the story of her love life with boldness and irreverence.” (USA Today, for Straight Up and Dirty)

“Klein’s appeal comes not just from her nocturnal wonderings, but from her relentless plumbing of what went wrong in her twenties and how those mistakes inform her present.” (Elle, for Straight Up and Dirty)

“Klein’s sense of humor is downright wicked…a great, fun read.” (Publishers Weekly, for Straight Up and Dirty)

“Nothing, it seems, is too private not to share with . . . Ms. Klein’s legions of followers. And that is exactly how they like it. . . . [She is] the Carrie Bradshaw of New York bloggers.” (New York Times, for Straight Up and Dirty)

“Hilarious . . . perfect beach-blanket reading.” (New York Post, for Straight Up and Dirty)

“You could call her ‘a real-life Carrie Bradshaw,’ but it wouldn’t do Klein justice. With a fearless voice, the blogger weaves a memoir filled with heartbreak and humor… a compelling writer.” (People, for Straight Up and Dirty)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The author of the dishy memoir Straight Up and Dirty returns to share the story of her adolescence. Long before she was a glamorous young divorcee and superstar blogging mistress, Stephanie Klein was a seventh grader with a weight problem. At twelve years old, the boys at school call her Moose , her only friends were the nerds and misfits of the school, and her nighttime beauty routine involved soothing chub rub on her inner thighs. After several unsuccessful attempts at dieting and many frustrating sessions with Fran, a nutritionist known as the Fat Doctor of Roslyn Heights, Long Island, Stephanie s mother enrolled her for a summer at fat camp. Determined to lose her stubborn weight and return thin and popular for the school year, Stephanie embarked on a journey that would teach her more than just how to shed pounds. A coming-of-age story complete with before and after pictures and pages from Klein s journal, the book will appeal to women of all ages and anybody who has ever felt like the underdog. Moose is about what we all go through: finding friends, learning about ourselves, and realizing that who we are has remarkably little to do with our waistline.
