    • This title was so familiar to me I was sure I'd read it at least once, but apparently not because it all seemed new to me. I have to say-it seemed a bit strange to me-a big mysterious buildup, not sure who to trust, and then seemed to end too quickly, leaving me to still feel distrustful of Glenda. sarahsbookjournal.wordpress

      i read this in the 4th grade. i still LOVE it. it's kooky, it's strange. it's funny and plain easy to read. it's been fun reading it to my little girl.

    • Another one of those books from my childhood/pre-teen years that I fondly recall reading over and over

    • I have to say this was book was a big downer, I was expecting more from it! I love the plot! It's what made me interested in the book, but 40 pages later I hate all the characters! I think the worst part was the parents! I would always get mad at them when the narrator talked about them! They didn't even care about their daughter's thoughts! I wish the word choice was a bit strong so it can paint more of a picture. I also feel that the book was making it seem like being fat is bad/wrong. You sho [...]

    • This is a reread from childhood. My mom used to follow me around the library as I filled a huge bag with books; she picked this one out because she thought the title was funny, and because she wanted to get the hell home. I also read the second one, where Glenda loses a bunch of weight using one old weird trick (sensible diet and exercise).There is a lot going on here, but mostly it's a story about Sara, a girl caught between her weird Berkeley family and her new straitlaced Long Island suburb, [...]

    • i read this book when i was in elementary school, and remember thinking how strange it was that the narrator (who was supposed to be a new friend of glenda's) seemed to be fairly disloyal to glenda. i think i was spoken to more by the differences between the opposite income brackets of the two families than any aesthetic discord.

    • I read this as a kid and it has stayed with me. Especially the follow-up book. It is kind of hard to find books like this today written about normal kids doing normal things! Lila Perl does a great job taking you into the lives of young teens and making it fun.

    • an oldie but goodie that I seemed to have missed when it first came out and when the kids were younger

    • This was an odd one at times, but it kept my attention enough to want to read more in the series.

    • I'm glad that this book was reprinted, I'd read about it on the Shelf Discovery blog & was hoping to find it one day. It was good, but man do I wish I had read this when I was 9 years old!

    • Enjoyed it as a young reader. Loved it in middle age.

    • It is pretty boring for such a sensational title.

      This review also appears on my blog, Read-at-Home Mom.Me and Fat Glenda is another vintage kids' book recently resurrected by Lizzie Skurnick Books. Main character Sara moves with her unconventional parents from California to a Long Island suburb, where their free-spirited ways are decidedly not welcome. The neighbors take issue with Sara's father's backyard junk sculpture, her mother's decision to paint her bedroom ceiling black, and the family's vehicle, a used garbage truck. Glenda, an overwe [...]

    • I know I adored this book when I was younger, and I was so happy to be able to read it again (thank you again Open Library). Strangely enough, it wasn't all what I remembered, except the alphabet burgers. I really think my memory combined it with a few other books.Also, I'm a bit surprised that I didn't realize how similiar it was to both Blubber and Nothing's Fair in the 5th Grade.It was fun to read again, although I don't like the fact that the way to make everyone like Glenda in the end is to [...]
