From the Publisher:
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.
Author Bio
Paula Danziger
Paula Danziger became an author as the result of two car accidents. The first accident was relatively mild, but several days later, while driving to a doctor's appointment, she was hit head-on by a drunk driver. This accident resulted in temporary brain damage that left her unable to read for some time. In an effort to overcome the powerlessness she felt as a patient working to overcome her injuries, Danziger turned to writing a novel about a teenage girl who suffers from low self-esteem and family troubles--THE CAT ATE MY GYMSUIT, which is still one of her most popular works. Danziger was also encouraged to become a writer by her mentor, the poet John Ciardi, for whom she worked as a babysitter while attending Montclair State College. Prior to becoming a full-time writer, Danziger worked for the New Jersey school system both as a substitute and full-time teacher.
