Back cover copy

Too fat, too fat, too fat. Too F-A-T. I’ve never exactly liked the way I look. I suppose I was cute when I was little, but now I feel like an alien has invaded my body and blown it up out of all recognition. It doesn’t help that my best friends are both drop-dead gorgeous and skinny; Magda is super glamorous and Nadine has even got the chance to be a real model in a glossy magazine! Next to them, who’s going to look at me, Ellie the Elephant? ‘Jacqueline Wilson pulls off the rare feat of dramatizing a serious issue with a light touch’ Daily Telegraphshow more
