Book #8 Read in 2015
Skinny by Donna Cooner (YA)
This is a realistic fiction book in the young adult field. Ever is an overweight teenager. She decides to have gastric bypass surgery. The author had it as well so this story is so realistic and informational that it made it even more powerful. While the surgery helps Ever lose weight, it does not immediately change how Ever views herself. She thinks of herself as the fat girl that no one likes. As the book unfolds, she realizes that sometime it wasn't others but her choice to not be friends with people; she exuded an anger that she didn't even realized showed to others.
This was a good, quick read. I think high school girls would enjoy it. I borrowed this book from the town library.
