Rachel DeWoskin

Big Girl Small


(Rescheduled from April)

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 her, three-foot-nine-inch teen, to these circumstances, which include 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.
