Summary:  Determined to win this year’s top science prize and to get revenge on her former friend Matt, Cat takes on the ultimate challenge; she becomes the guinea pig in her own experiment.  Overweight and a junk food lover, Cat decides to adopt a prehistoric lifestyle.  She forgoes processed food & modern technology and scientifically documents the changes that occur in her body.  Cat expects pounds to melt away, but she is completely surprised by other results, including the reaction of those around her.

Thoughts:  I love, love, love Robin Brande!  She creates strong, intelligent heroines that tackle big challenges, and she beautifully weaves science throughout her clever storylines.  In Fat Cat, Ms. Brande once again creates realistic, complex, memorable characters that make you laugh, make you think, and steal your heart.
