Summary
When she is almost sixteen years old, Rosemary decides she is sick of being overweight, mocked at school and at Heavenly Hair--her mother's beauty salon--and feeling out of control, and as she slowly loses weight, she realizes that she is able to cope with her mother's cancer, having a boyfriend for the first time, and discovering that other people's lives are not as perfect as they seem from the outside
Summary
When she wore her brand-new green down jacket in the sixth grade, Rosemary Goode got the nickname "Fat Artichoke" from a queen-bee classmate. Now, at 15, smart, sassy Rosie has no friends, still gets called "Artichoke," and spends all of her free time working at her mother's small-town Tennessee hair salon. She dreams of magically losing weight and catching the attention of nice-guy football star Kyle Cox...but it's going to be tough to ditch her current boyfriends "Mr. Hershey and Mr. Reese's." Readers who enjoy well-drawn characters, Southern charm, humor, and emotional honesty will savor Artichoke's Heart. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
