Eating Bull

Novelist, M.D. and blogger Carrie Rubin’s Eating Bull takes on obesity, bullying, coming of age in a fast-paced thriller. A social worker convinces an overweight teen to sue the fast food industry, bringing both of them to the attention of a killer who has made it his mission to rid the world of obese people. Not for the faint of heart!

Rubin does a great job of bringing to life the ambiguities and complexities of obesity in our culture. Even the  villain, whose contempt for overweight people is horrific, may ring familiar bells — ever look with blame and judgment at a heavy person eating a doughnut?

Grisly, educational, intelligent, and a page-turner.
