Waiting on Wednesday (27): OCD, the Dude & Me

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

So I totally don't remember much of anything about The Big Lebowski. I watched it in college, but nothing really stuck with me. This book sounds fantastic, though, despite the lame cover. Bowling ball face? Really? Whatever. Frizzy hair, plus size, sarcastic heroine? I am all over that. Plus, she entertains herself by writing raunchy essays for class. That sounds hilarious.

OCD, the Dude & Me

Author: Lauren Roedy Vaughn
Expected Publication Date: March 21, 2013
Publisher: Dial

Synopsis from Goodreads:
With frizzy orange hair, a plus-sized body, sarcastic demeanor, and "unique learning profile," Danielle Levine doesn't fit in even at her alternative high school. While navigating her doomed social life, she writes scathing, self-aware, and sometimes downright raunchy essays for English class. As a result of her unfiltered writing style, she is forced to see the school psychologist and enroll in a "social skills" class. But when she meets Daniel, another social misfit who is obsessed with the cult classic film The Big Lebowski, Danielle's resolve to keep everyone at arm's length starts to crumble.

This Sounds wonderful. I'd never heard of it before. And I kind of like the cover (you know minus the whole thing about the model definitely not being plus-sized).

Yeah, the model does at least not look stick thin, but she's so not plus-sized.
