Butter by Erin Jade Lange

Butter is the nickname given to a 423-pound boy by the bullies who forced him to eat a stick of it (butter!). After the horrible incident, our overweight protagonist has never been called by his first name again.

In the midst of being coaxed into joining the school band by the music teacher and SaxMan (his chatroom anonymous identity) making a promise to the girl of his dreams to finally meet-up with in New Year's, Butter veered into his own suicidal plot.

He sets up a website (ButtersLastMeal.com) where he will dine his way to death.


Favorite lines:

A good novel with a great character. It was a portal to a lonely boy's world and how it felt like to be unwanted or ridiculed. Butter's humorous demeanor made it light to the audience. Otherwise, it would have been a never-ending sob story. I would give it 4 stars if I were the kind of person who gives stars.
