Two Starred Reviews for Big Girl Small

Rachel DeWoskin's BIG GIRL SMALL, available April 2011, has earned starred reviews from both Booklist and Publishers Weekly for its accurate (at times painfully accurate) recreation of the high school experience. The boys are crushable, the girls are complicated, and Judy Lohden is a sarcastic, talented scandal-magnet that will draw you in, as well.

"DeWoskin deftly captures the often vicious dynamics of adolescents, which mask their fragility, and creates in Judy an unforgettable character, one who is, by turns, sardonic and heartbreakingly vulnerable." — Booklist (starred review)

"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."        — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
