Summary
Anne Tyler's third novel is the story of Evie Decker, one of the most overweight girls in her high school in Pulqua, North Carolina. Evie, who has always been on the outskirts of the popular crowd, falls in love with a rock and roll singer and guitar player named Bertram "Drumstrings" Casey. To demonstrate her absolute devotion to him, Evie uses a pair of nail scissors to carve his name on her forehead--but because she does it while looking in the mirror, the word is spelled YESAC. Although her father wants her to go to a plastic surgeon, Evie refuses. Tyler explores the relationship between Drum and Evie with compassion and grace. -- Description by: Nancy Pearl
