This is about an overweight girl named Catherine who get's a science project that changes her life. She must emulate the ways of the early hominids, the earliest ancestors of human beings. She eats an all natural diet and eliminates technology from her life. she foregoes a series of adventures that leads to an ending I never expected! I would love to have this book.

5 Hard to imagine a better book
It's inspirational to everyone. This book is a wonderful novel for all ages. Cat's struggles are reflected in lots of lives because of the same problems Cat had. This book gives an original way to deal with those problems and gives you ways to be more healthy in a really nice suggestive sneaky way, which is appreciated. I would love a copy of this book.
