High school is hell I remember the horror of being a teen aged girl Few of us were comfortable in our skin justifiably so We felt ugly We had uni brows bad skin horrendous hair and less than perfect bodies Ever Davies high school experience is worse She has struggled with her weight for as long as she can remember but she did it alongside her cherished mother Five years after losing her mom it is clear that Ever stopped fighting She is 5 6 and weighs 302 pounds This is why people think terrible thoughts about her Ever knows what everyone is thinking the Goth fairy on her should named Skinny tells her People are disgusted by her obesity Her two step sisters acknowledge her only when her assistance is needed Jackson a boy that was one of her best friends growing up stopped speaking to her years ago Ever wants him back as than a friend but she knows her weight is the issue Determined to reclaim Jackson Ever has gastric bypass surgeryHer other best friend since childhood the one that didn t abandon her as she gained weight went through the surgery and healing process with her every step of way That was Rat always there always dependable and always her RatAs the pounds melt away The Beautiful People start to speak to Ever Are they being kind or calculating With Skinny whispering in her ear Ever can t be sure One thing Ever is sure about Jackson has noticed Clearly the surgery was worth it Now she can have everything she s dreamed of As her new friends get closer Rat seems further away She ll address that soon it s Rat he s always there for her Ever begins to hear things for herself rather than through Skinny Is it possible that her weight wasn t an issue If she appeared to be angry and hateful it was only in defensewasn t it Shouldn t she be ridiculously happy right now instead of feeling confused as if something was missing Being smart Ever is uick to realize that she has lost than just extra pounds but is it too lateMs Cooner perfectly captures teen angst attitude and dialogue Anyone that has felt left out due to a physical trait will relate to and root for Ever The story is sometimes sweet sometimes hilarious and sometimes very sad but it is a fantastic story from beginning to end The characters were very realistic I uickly became attached to Ever I wanted to yell at her to hug her and sometimes to shake her I enjoyed this book tremendously and I will certainly be looking forward to whatever Ms Cooner writes next

Donna Cooner  4 Summary

Skinny AUTHOR Donna Cooner Read & Download ☆ 4 Download ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook  Donna Cooner review Skinny AUTHOR Donna Cooner Y help her lose weight and start overWith the support of her best friend Ever begins the uphill battle toward change But demons she finds are not so easy to shake not even as she sheds pounds Because Skinny is still around And Ever will have to confront that voice before she can truly find her own. I m shocked that I have to give a review like this for a story I thought would be a 5 star but this actually made me really upset Borderline really angry Actually not even borderline There will be a few tiny references in here that shouldn t be spoilerific but noting it here just in caseOkay starting with the good the symptoms and description of gastric bypass surgery were on it The psychological aspect as well as the physiological standpoint I have several people very close to me who have had the surgery so this was relatable and sympathetic It ends thereNo gastric bypass surgeon would agree to this surgery in that short amount of time without therapy It wouldn t happen Depression would have to be noted and other treatments and attempts would have to happen first Not in out done or pretty sure people would lose their licenses to perform this procedureIgnoring the name Ever because of the clich ness just what the hell I was so excited to watch her journey I felt for her with things I ve done such as eating healthy around others then physically hiding when eating junk I was so stokedand then she makes a comment about Kristen s mom A derogatory putdown referencing her mother being a stripper A line that was paraphrased as maybe Kristen would have confidence if she were hanging upside down on poles like her mother Seriously Seriously you take an AMAZING character then throw in a dig against people who strip for a living Like they re lesser people REALLY For a book about becoming better this happens And there s never one moment of apology in terms of this Character revelation that she s not nice Maybe that made my review bias because from that moment on I actually loathed Ever I didn t root for her I didn t find any of her behavior as believableMaybe that made my review bias because I m not borderline angry any I m actually seething This is setting aside the massive stereotypes throughout the novel really A character implied as gay because he wears nail polish The popular kids as the skinny minnies While I appreciated the musical references I would have preferred even if they were consistent with a character s vocal range and a little less on the nose obscure than what people sing on Glee and The Voice So I m giving this a 2 star The 2 stars come from the very accurate portrayal of gastric bypass surgery But beyond that I found the book to be shockingly insensitive considering the issues And the conversation with Skinny at the end where it s all over within maybe a page Really The lead up was to that Disappointing Would not recommend this book
