New YA Book Review

I just finished reading Skinny by Donna Cooner.  It was refreshing to read something different from all the dystopian and fantasy novels out there.  This story follows Ever who lost her mother to cancer and comforts herself with food.  Ever is in high school and weighs 302 pounds.  She is a very unhappy girl who has a voice in her head she calls Skinny who reminds her constantly that no one likes her and everyone is judging her based on her size.  Ever covers her pain with sarcasm and mean comments to fellow students.  She decides to have gastric bypass surgery to help her lose weight.  This book is about her weight loss journey and self discovery.  This is a great book that has believable characters and story that won't disappoint.  Skinny is a great read for all.
