Paperweight (YA)


Book #95 Read in 2015
Paperweight by Meg Haston (YA)

Stevie is sent to a rehab facility for girls with eating disorders.  Of course, Stevie doesn't think she has an eating disorder.  She is also planning on committing suicide on the upcoming anniversary of her brother Joshua's death.  Stevie feels guilty that he's dead.  At the rehab, she slowly becomes friends with her cottage mates and slowly begins to open up to Shrink, her name for Anna, her therapist.  How does someone overcome such emotionally wrought issues?  Similar to Laurie Halse Anderson's book Wintergirls, this book looks at eating disorders with brutal honesty.  Paperweight is well written and would be a hit with high school girls and adults alike.  I received a copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a honest review.
