Rachel DeWoskin's "Big Girl Small" is an amazing book. It is about a sixteen year old girl named Judy Lohden who is extremely smart and unique. She is very original for although she is a new girl in a new school, she is also a teenager who is three foot nine inches tall. This little characteristic takes over Judy's life and is tearing her apart. She herself said that there is no point of living when you can;t escape from the situation that you are in. Although she receives a good education and is able to have decent friends who don't judge her, she does get caught up with a situation where she is video taped and after everyone sees this video, her life is just not the same. She even runs away without telling anyone but her family and friend support keeps her alive. It is a nicely worded and brilliant story which should catch reader's eyes easily.
