Manstealing for Fat Girls by Michelle Embree

This off-kilter novel centers on three girls who are definitely not part of the in crowd: ones fat, ones a dyke, and one is missing a breast. Nicknamed Lezzylard by her classmates, Angie is seduced by the prettiest girl in school, an anorexic who just wants to make imaginary grocery lists. Inez, the schools pot dealer, cant shoplift because security guards are mesmerized by her single enormous breast. Shelby and Angie cant be together, because then everyone will think Angies only a dyke because shes too fat to get a guy. Manstealing for Fat Girls explodes the locus where patriarchal and class violence intersect, while embracing all that is magical -- and dangerous -- about adolescence. Set in a working class suburb of St. Louis in the 1980s, the book is replete with music and pop culture references of the era, but the bullying, lunch table treachery, and desperate desire to fit in ring true for every generation.
