All About Vee by C. Leigh Purtill

Veronica May is big in many ways, the most insignificant being clothing size. She’s got a big heart, especially when it comes to her father and fellow Vees, big talent as a theater actress, and, most noticeably, a big attitude. Deep down, Big Vee knows she can go so much further than just starring in community theater productions in Chester, Arizona. It only takes a nudge from her father’s decision to remarry and the loss of her job for Vee to make up her mind. Vee, sure she’s destined for greater things, heads off to join her old friend Little Vee, now called Reed and also an aspiring actress in Hollywood, California. LA can bring out the best and worst in people, so how will it change Big Vee? Can this big girl survive, or will she become a slave to the promise of Hollywood stardom

Absolutely delightful book for young adults or mature pre teens. It's ethical, beautifully written and deals with body image. It's written in such a way that younger readers will feel pleased with their being able to let in on the more grown up world. Leigh Purtill is a very creative writer. The characters stay with you. You'll love it.
