She weighs about fifteen pounds more than her friends. Suzy says, “My friends are so much prettierthan I am. I am so fat. I wish I could be as skinny as they are.” She also says, “It’s not fair that you guys are so skinny and I am fat.”When Suzy comes home from school she is starved to death. She is a picky eater. She doesn’t like the things they serve at lunch, so she spends her lunch money in the candy and Coke machine at school.
