Growing up, comedian Margot Leitman was an awkward giant, and Gawky is the painfully funny chronicle of her experiences growing up tall. Reaching five feet six inches in fourth grade—and approaching six feet in high school—Leitman realized early on that she'd always stand out from the crowd. To cope, she developed a thick skin and a sharp sense of humor, and instead of forever trying to blend in, she decided to embrace her center-of-attention status. Leitman wears funky, Ziggy Stardust-era jumpsuits (in the 90s); takes up any cause she can find (whether saving the public beaches or protesting prom); and generally makes as much use of her big presence as humanly possible.

Leitman’s memoir is a hilarious celebration of growing up gangly. Endearing and encouraging, Gawky is a cathartic release of everything awkward girls endure—and a tribute to a youth larger than life.

A love letter to all the strange (not so) little girls out there who feel like no one understands them.

I never even realized Margot Leitman was that tall. I guess her hilarious and dazzling aura plays tricks on the eyes. Or she slouches when she talks to me. Whatever the case, I’m happy that she wrote this book.
