Sugar Legowski-Gracia wasn't always fat, but fat is what she is now at age seventeen. Not as fat as her mama, who is so big she hasn't gotten out of bed in months. When Sugar meets Even (not Evan; his nearly illiterate father misspelled his name on the birth certificate), she has the new experience of someone seeing her and not her body. As their unlikely friendship builds, Sugar allows herself to think about the future for the first time, a future not weighed down by her body or her mother.… (mer)

Didn't care for it. Although I was able to connect with the main character the way it was written, I found the story too predictable and nothing was original in its form. A fast read. ( )

I think this book does a good job of helping people who can't understand why overweight people are overweight make the connections, not that everyone has the same story as this teen. I enjoyed the storyline also. ( )

I loved the writing. In many uncomfortable ways I related to the main character, and this transported me back to my old town and into the skin of the teenage girl I was, the one that sometimes still lingers. I cried and laughed with these characters, and I felt attached to them, wanting them to succeed...and even fail. That is the most you can hope for in a story, for it to grip you tight and not let you go. Aside with some minor issues with how things often progressed in a one drab note sort of way, overall the author did a tremendous job of revealing insecurities, issues, stagnation, change and confidences without soley attributing it to another person or just a set of circumstances. Often books like these want a catalyst for change to be love, and the bridge to be burned all thier worries wrapped up neatly. Sugar is raw, its messy, its complex, and the character was a work in progress that found it in herself to progress at her own pace. I appreciate that, and it made this story a breath of fresh air. I think I found a new favorite. ( )

This book started out having me wondering if I wanted to really read it but it was worth reading. This is a book that is about Adverse Childhood Experiences. Sugar is a young woman, abused by her mother, brother, and all the kids at school. A great coming of age story of resiliency. Audio is well done.
Rating: 3.5 ( )

A heartbreaking look at child abuse - psychological, physical, neglect, etc. I hate how much this book made me feel. My only qualm was that - once again - the poor little fat girl needed to be saved by an amazing perfect newcomer. I've yet to read a book about childhood/teenage obesity where the protagonist learns to love themself through their own strength of will. ( )
