And indeed, as someone who has always struggled with weight and body image questions and who especially as a teenager was constantly being told by "well meaning" family members, teachers etc. My hope is that my daughter will read this book and see how Marcy gained self-confidence; and that she will be able to tell herself "if Marcy could do it, then maybe I can to.

I also loved the character of Ms. So, into the world of Cover 1 and very-much-not Cover 2 two enters Diane Finney, un-teachery teacher, wearer of turtleneck, jean skirt, and a macrame necklace. Finally, Ms.

The Cat Ate My Gymsuit

The class gets a new, more conventional English teacher, and Ms. But now, her mother is a lot stronger and making her own decisions. I'm not sure she can comprehend a world where women are subservient to and possibly afraid of their husbands, or where a teacher could be fired for refusing to say the Pledge of Allegiance.

This novel teaches self-confidence. Online paper writing help saves your time, spares from book report on the checklist manifesto frustration and helps achieve academic success. Finney were too good to last. Truly is depicted as a complex young adult, not a single-minded social climber.

The title of the book comes from one of the many excuses Marcy offers to her gym teacher, named Ms. A modern electric bicycle that shrinks your city book report on the chocolate war and reduces your footprint. Finney, joined along the way, surprisingly, not only by the quietly supportive Joel, but by her mother, who graduates from capitulating to her husband's abject bitchazzness to defending Ms.

Finney's unorthodox teaching style. Teachers are invested in their intellectual development and well-being. Now finally, The Cat Ate my Gymsuit also deals with something that is due to my own personal experiences very close to my heart, namely Marcy Lewis' weight and body image issues.

With a resolution that is both realistic and hopeful, Vail captures the complexity of middle school social challenges, insightfully addressing the issues of friendships and integrity. Her older, shorter, more beautiful sister never ceases to remind Cassie that she is a giraffe.

Finney is a creative and challenging free-thinker who encourages the class to analyze their emotional reactions, leading them to create a school club called Smedley, where they are encouraged to consider not only their feelings, but those of others.

Marcy and the other students continually ask the other teachers to be more like her, but they just get disgusted at the students when they ask this.

Stone firing Ms.

The Cat Ate My Gymsuit by Paula Danziger

She decides to join the fight to bring back her teacher, and in doing so, she discovers that her voice might matter more than she ever realized. I had a very supportive father, and I can't imagine how difficult it would be to navigate the middle school years with someone who was so verbally abusive.

Now all you need to know is where it could all fall off the rails. For what Marcy experiences with regard to her own body weight issues and how in particular her mother at the beginning of the novel often tries to unsuccessfully encourage her daughter to lose weight and yes indeed shown by Paula Danziger as absolutely unhelpful if not unintentionally nastilythese words would have been a tremendous help and comfort in the late s and early s when I as a teenager was experiencing precisely the same type of "though love" and finding this, like Marcy does in The Cat Ate my Gymsuit both unhelpful and generally much devoid of any type of actual affection, and which I also so heartily appreciate that Paula Danziger clearly, compassionately and succinctly shows as always, as generally being equally and precisely this.

Everything wasn't okay for Ms. Marcy likes Ms. The school board reluctantly reinstates her, but Ms. Finney has to teach what was in the syllabus.

Was I supposed to tell him I was a blimp trying to disguise myself as a real person; or that I probably had a horrible case of contagious impending pimples; or that I had this weird brother with a teddy bear filled with orange pits; or that I thought that he was cute and brave and probably thinking about how suicide would be better than talking to me?

Teachers may also enjoy the book, which does not cast educational administration is the best light, and I'm a sucker for any book or movie where the teacher is a hero-type character. It doesn't work! Writing book report on the cat ate my gymsuit an essay is not easy, and people who say that it is easy, definitely need a reality check.
