||Marcy Lewis has a lot to deal with?a clinging mother, an angry father, a lousy school situation, and the inescapable fact that she is fat. But when Ms. Barbara Finney arrives to take over Marcy's English class (the kids drove the previous teacher out) suddenly nothing in Marcy's life will ever be the same. Ms. Finney is bright, funny, creative?and, as far as the principal is concerned, more trouble than she is worth. What is a good teacher worth? How far will Marcy and her friends go to help Ms. Finney? And, what price will they pay for their beliefs? Funny yet painfully real The Cat Ate My Gymsuit turns on a cultural clash that is as relevant today as when it was written. A modern American classic, this beloved novel springs to vivid new life in this brilliant full-cast recording. SPECIAL FEATURE: An afterword from Paula Danziger herself, telling how she came to Write The Cat Ate My Gymsuit.
