This is a brilliantly funny tale of romantic confusion! Cat is fat and boring - or so she thinks. Her mum is a stick insect and so is her twin sister Tessa - a bit of a spoilt brat who can get any boy she wants. There's a new arrival in their town from the USA - Josh, the son of their dad's boss. He's gorgeous so Tessa is keen and Cat knows she doesn't have a chance...But Josh seems strangely uninterested in Tess. Cat thinks there must be more to the situation...She and Josh become friends and eventually she thinks she's got to the bottom of the mystery...maybe Josh just isn't into girls at all...Now she has a new best gay friend, cat's life is much happier, and she and Josh get on wonderfully. If only things could stay that simple...show more

Back cover copy

I'm Cat - and i'm the fat, plain one in my family. When i say fat, I don't mean 'have-to-be-prised-out-of-a-hula-hoop' fat, but when your mum and sister are practically size zero, it's hard not to feel like elephant girl in comparison. My twin sister Tessa is blonde, gorgeous and gets any boy she wants. Right now she's got her eye on Josh, a really fit American guy who's just moved to Glasgow. But he doesn't seem interested in her. It's weird. I've never known any boy who didn't fancy Tessa. Well, not any straight ones anyway . . . Of course! It all makes sense . . . Funny that he doesn't want to tell anyone his secret, not even me, his new best friend . . . Could Cat be jumping to conclusions about Josh? A wonderfully funny tale of romantic confusion from the author of My Desperate Love Diaryshow more
