If you wanted to get back at me for breaking up with you, then congratulations, jerkwad, you’ve done it. No, the bigger problem is that this book actually isn't about bullying, or fat-shaming, or living with mental illness, it's about high school love. So this is the super offensive book that no one wanted to read due to a reference in the blurb about how the main character was so fat she had to be removed from her house with a crane. so is it fair to judge a different book by the same author when you know they are capable of doing better?

But when destiny unites him to Libby he will begin to see everything differently and accept the unimaginable.I guess it’s actually from one of Jennifer’s interviews videos on YouTube, where she “dropped” some of her favorite books randomly on the streets, near the telephone booth, or beside a statue in London. If someone asked me whether this book was a good example of showing body positivism I would say a firm goodness no. It plays into the bullying and belittling dialogues about people who are overweight rather than allowing people to love themselves for who they are, no matter their weight.

Yes, he's got swagger, but he's also mastered the impossible art of giving people what they want, of fitting in.Although I read all the bright places a while ago (and hated the film) and have definitely become more cynical since. Yes, he’s got swagger, but he’s also mastered the impossible art of giving people what they want, of fitting in. This means that he can’t recognise faces, so his brothers, friends and even himself are complete strangers.

If a genie popped out of my bedside lamp, I would wish for these three things: my mom to be alive, nothing bad or sad to ever happen again, and to be a member of the Martin Van Buren High School Damsels, the best drill team in the tristate area. Aside from no longer being afraid of organ failure, that may be the best thing about now versus then. the "lifted out of her house by a crane"/other uses of fat as an insult: like i said, probably misguided. At first I wasn't going to say anything but then the comments and review updates on here and Twitter started to really hit a nerve with me. I loved how much detail was put into the side characters – Jack’s little brother Dusty was by far my favourite character.My new title will be high school junior, which, let's face it, sounds a lot better than America's Fattest Teen. However, after seeing a lot of people give it 5 stars – despite all of the problematic aspects I had seen – I decided to pick this book up for the roast. She refuses to let her weight define her, stand in her way of her dreams, and fights the fuck back against anyone that dares to ridicule her. And yes, they help each other to some extent, but mainly, and most importantly, they do the work themselves. Her characters Libby and Jack feel so real that it's almost impossible to believe they don't live and breathe.
