great book... Apr 1, 2007
I remember reading this as a teenager, and bought it for my 10-year-old. It's very well written and really speaks to the pre-teen audience.

Gave the book to my 12 year old granddaughter. She loves cats. Really enjoyed the book!
BY A 6TH GRADER THATS NOT PASSING MATH!! May 17, 2006
THIS BOOK IS A VERY LIFE RELATING STORY. IT IS ABOUT A GIRL WHO THINKS SHE'S A BLIMP WITH WIRED FRAMED GLASSES, SHE HAS TWO FRIENDS, AND LIKE ANY OTHER GIRL, HAS A CRUSH ON A GUY AT SCHOOL. I ENJOYED THIS BOOK A LITTLE, BUT I DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TITLE. THIS BOOK MIGHT HAVE A WEIRD TITLE, BUT IT HAS GOOD DESCRIBTIONS THAT PAINT PICTURES IN YOUR HEAD. I WOULD RECAMEND THIS BOOK TO SOME ONE WHO LIKES HUMOR AND REALITY RELATING STORIES.
The Cat Ate My Gymsuit ( a Parent's perspective) Mar 20, 2006
I decided to read this book along with my third grader (it was on her list of reading material rated for third grade reading). She and i both liked the book ok. I felt that the material was too advanced for a third grader to grasp. There were so many life lessons in this book. It will be better understood perhaps by middle school students or perhaps high school students. I had no appreciation for the lead character (Marcy) always putting herself down. She was way too introspective of her shortcomings. And because her Mother was weak in character, she could not help Marcy see the beauty in herself. It seemed morbid at times the way that this storyline keyed in on Marcy's insecurities. I understand the time that this book was penned (1978). Things were different for some women. I remember women being strong and working towards their independence. In 2006, this book would be counterproductive for young and older women.
The Cat Ate My Gymsuit- an absoulutely awesome book Feb 25, 2006
The Cat Ate My Gymsuit is a really awesome book. It is realistic, funny, sad. I had a really hard time putting this book down. (even for a spelling test.) If you haven't read it, i suggest you do immeadiatly. I read this book shortly after Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, which was wtitten around the same time, and found them to be similar in a messed-up sort of way. But I can totally relate to Marcy Lewis's feelings in the book. I also love the way it's written. Almost like a kid actually wrote it. The kids in the book were so similar to the kids at my own shcool. The entire book has this awesome sour-sweet taste to it. It was way cool.
