Description: Stephanie McAfee debut's her novel, DIARY OF A MAD FAT GIRL. Ten years ago McAfee decided she wanted to seriously pursue writing. Putting her career as a schoolteacher on hold, McAfee wrote and then self-published, DIARY OF A MAD FAT GIRL, as an e-book in 2010. Shortly thereafter, her e-book novel became a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, staying on the lists for nine weeks and receiving rave reviews from McAfee fans across the country. Now in a revised and expanded form, New American Library brings McAfee's hilariously charming novel into print for the first time.

In DIARY OF A MAD FAT GIRL McAfee delivers a fast-paced tale about Graciela "Ace" Jones, known in her small town of Bugtussle, Mississippi as a feisty high school teacher with an outsized presence and a big mouth to match. Readers quickly learn that Ace is mad--mad at her best friend Lilly who cancels their annual trip to Panama City for mysterious reasons, mad at her boss Catherine, mad at her friend Chloe's abusive husband and especially at Mason McKenzie, the love of her life, who has shown up with a marriage proposal three years too late. The only one she isn't mad at is her near-constant canine companion, chi-weenie Buster Loo.

In an effort to tackle her anger, Ace decides to take matters into her own hands as she works to take down Chloe's philandering husband, give Mason a second chance, and try and get to the bottom of a multitude of other scandals plaguing Bugtussle--not to mention all while trying to navigate Southern small-town politics and prejudices! With a sharp and distinctive voice, McAfee's DIARY OF A MAD FAT GIRL is a debut not to be missed.
