About the Author
Robin Brande‘s first novel, Evolution, Me, and Other Freaks of Nature, was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, a Michigan Library Association Thumbs Up! Award Winner for Excellence in Teen/Young Adult Literature, a Children’s Book Sense 76 Pick, an Amelia Bloomer Project Selection, and an NCSS-CBC Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People. As an overweight teen, Robin tried her share of bizarre diets, including the fabulous broccoli and beets diet. Her book Fat Cat was born of the idea that a smart and scientific girl could devise a much more creative solution.
