Fat Boy Swim

Catherine Forde

I think this book is fit for anyone who has ever had problems with teasing, or who is interested in learning about it. Fat Boy Swim is about a fourteen year old boy who is always being teast by ignorant school mates. He is mainly teased about his weight problem. Throughout the book he meets different people, such as GI Joe, Elle and Aunt Pol, who help him pursue his dream as well as find his true identity. While reading this book I felt I could relate to the main character. I was always met with surprises in each chapter that kept me reading. I would definitely rate this book a 4.
