Conversations with the Fat Girl
In Conversations with the Fat Girl, overweight Maggie and Olivia are best friends…until Olivia gets gastric bypass surgery and embarks on a size 2 life.
Source of Angst: Olivia asks Maggie to be maid of honor at her wedding, forcing Maggie to hang out with Olivia’s insufferable new friends.
Career Move: Sick of her dead-end job, Maggie applies for an internship at the Getty Museum.
Lowdown: The story takes a more interesting turn once Maggie stops wallowing. And the descriptions of Olivia’s catty pals are priceless.
