Read it! Buy it, borrow it from a friend, take it out from the library, but just read this book!

It’s “can’t put it down” good.

Having never had an issue with food or body image, I still found the characters in the book incredibly relatable. Everyone can identify with one of the kinds of problems there having; confidence, control, parental issues, questioning your future, problematic friendships.

This book should be read in high schools to let girls know they aren’t alone, and to let boys see the power of hurtful words and names. It would open up such great communication doors for everyone.

Really powerful stuff. Bravo Laurie Halse Anderson, you did it again!
