If you don't read this, even though I really believe everyone should at some point, at least read/listen to the authors interview. ( )

This book is about a topic that should be discussed more often. - Aida C. ( )

Cover Thoughts: I really like this cover, but I kind of wish the words in gray would have been some of the terrible things Skinny whispered in Ever's ear instead of the same word over and over again in different fonts. I think just by looking at the cover and the title I would guess that this book is about a girl with an eating disorder who was way too skinny.

Why did I read this? It's interesting to me to get a glimpse into the lives and minds of people who are going through life with trials and tribulations that are different from my own. I think reading books like this help me learn to relate to and empathize with people better.

Thoughts: I loved this book so much. Seriously, so much. It's not often that I walk away from a book and feel uplifted and ready to face my demons head-on. I am thrilled to report that this was one of those books.

I went into this read a little worried I wouldn't relate because I've never had an issue with weight. Luckily, I inherited my grandpa's fast metabolism and have remained the same size, give or take five pounds for almost a decade. I have, however, been surrounded by people I love who do struggle and I've had a hard time relating to that struggle. One of those people has told me time and time again that, "I just don't understand" and that this struggle isn't easy. The one thing I LOVED about this book is that it opens your eyes so that you realize that everyone struggles with something and while those struggles may be different in nature we can support one another.

For me, my struggle has been acne. I've had a clear-faced monster on my shoulder whispering phrases as damaging as Skinny's whispers to Ever. I've been to so many dermatologists and have tried all kinds of diets and medicines and guess what? Nothing worked. Then one day I woke up and I realized this is something that seems to be out of my control. The best thing I can do is stop worrying and take those steps to keep my face clean, limit the amount of makeup, moisturize daily, etc. My skin isn't amazing, but it has improved because I try really hard not to listen to that voice.

This book will take you on a journey and along the way you will find and face your demons as Ever faces her. You will laugh and maybe cry but I promise you will enjoy the ride. I would strongly recommend reading this book.

Advisory: I may have shed a single tear. . .keep a Kleenex nearby. ( )

I give this book a high rating. This book tells the story of a girl over 300 pounds and how hard it is to be like that. To make matters worse she has a small mean voice in her ear all the time. The voice she named "skinny" tells her what people think about her. All those unheard thoughts are in her ear 24-7. She gets sick and tired of looking like that so she does a surgery to remove some of the fat. She suffers through the surgery and ends up losing the wait. But that's not all she loses ( )

Okay, so I really liked this book, like, a lot. Maybe partly cause I can relate to it. Aside from the weight loss part. But I could not put it down. But I can honestly say that if Ever wouldn't have realized that Rat was perfect and loved her, I was going to jump into the book and personally slap her into her senses. Gah! When Jackson asked her to the dance, I was like "Nooooooo! you need to go with Rat! He stayed with you through your worst!! Jackson doesn't deserve you!!!!" But it all worked out in the end, yay! ( )

I know what they think because she whispers their throughts into my ear. I can hear them. Clearly. Constantly. "If I every look like that, just kill me." Her name is Skinny.
