Summary
Despair comes in all sizes. So does hope. Colby, insecure, shy, and way overweight, hates the limelight as much as her pageant-pretty mom and sisters love it. But Dad's a hero, running for office on a family-values platform. Suddenly, he ditches his marriage for a younger woman and gets caught stealing money from the campaign. Everyone hates Colby for finding out and telling the truth. From a mansion, they end up in a poor relative's trailer, where her mother's contempt swells right along with Colby's supersized jeans. Then, a cruel video of Colby half-dressed, made by her cousin Ryan, gets on the internet. Colby plans her own death, but Ryan steps in, and is mortally hurt. In the aftermath, Colby, hailed as a hero, knows she's a fraud. Threatened with exposure, Colby must face the truth about her selfish mother, and her own shame. Harrowing and hopeful, proof that proves that heroism can come with a fierce and terrible price, 'Big Fat Disaster' is that rare thing, a story that is authentically new
