Full-figured Bess Simpson despairs — so many men on campus are turned off by “fat chicks.” Only one has caught her eye, but he’s always with the petite drum major. Bolstered by an encouraging best friend, Bess finds her math ability comes in handy — the man of her dreams needs a tutor.

To make matters worse, the help session leader is no help, and dating the daughter of the department head isn’t getting him anywhere but henpecked, especially when he turns to Bess for some assistance.
Will Bess impress him beyond the subject at hand? Or is he unable to recognize her true value?
