The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things What's Up With the Ending?

By Carolyn Mackler

What's Up With the Ending?

The book starts and ends with Virginia kissing Froggy Welsh, but under radically different circumstances. In the beginning, Virginia's following the Fat Girl Code of Conduct, which states that all making out must be done in secret, but by the end, she works up the courage to kiss Froggy in the school hallway. You could say the last chapter wraps things up and ties a bow around them, but what we see at the end is actually another beginning—Virginia and Froggy are heading into a relationship, but Mackler doesn't tell us how it's going to turn out.
