Rachel DeWoskin postponed til May 11

Big Girl Small

In her hilarious and heartbreaking third book, Rachel DeWoskin (Foreign Babes
in Beijing) introduces bright and sardonic 16-year-old Judy Lohden. When we first meet
Judy, she is hiding out in a seedy motel on the edge of Ann Arbor, trying to outlast a
media frenzy. From here, she recounts the circumstances that led the three-foot-nine-inch
teen to this situation, which includes falling victim to “the worst Stephen King Carrie
prank in the history of dating.” In a starred review, Publishers Weekly raved, “It’s a rare
author who is willing to subject her protagonist to the extreme ranges of degradation and
redemption to which DeWoskin subjects Judy; thankfully, she manages it beautifully.”
