I really liked this book! It was a fun, quick read. Even though it's a "children's" book, with some mature topics, the story was very enjoyable. Sweet Pea and her cat Cheese are a delight.

Patricia “Sweet Pea” DiMarco is the sassy, thirteen-year-old heroine of this story. She is also fat, and she knows she’s beautiful! When Sweet Pea’s parents decide to separate, they try to make the transition as smooth for her as possible, but when Sweet Pea’s dad moves into a nearly-identical house two doors down, things get weird. Meanwhile, the DiMarcos’ neighbor, a mysterious old lady who pens responses to letters in a newspaper column called Dear Miss Flora Mae, asks for a favor, Sweet Pea may just get herself into a pickle. Julie Murphy’s outstanding middle grade debut is bigger than Texas!
