But it's s simple solution, really. Girl loves boy. Boy loves girl. Girl gets fat. Boy leaves. Girl cuts her stomach up into a little bitty pouch to get boy back.
"You will die," Skinny hisses in my ear.
I don't care. If I die, I die. I will do whatever it takes. I will let them cut my stomach open and change my internal organs forever. Even if I have to have a stomach the size of an egg for the rest of my life, I will never feel this way again.
Skinny, the character, is the voice inside our main characters head, Ever. Ever imagines her as a punk fairy, sort of Tinker Bell goes goth. Skinny, the book, is a contemporary read that deals with the problem of obesity and how it affects this 15 year old girl who is over 300 pounds. I mean, it isn't a supernatural read by any means but I am enjoying it. The main character Ever isn't exactly easy to relate to (as in she is sort of hostile but with good reason) but once you get inside her head and know all the problems she deals with on a day to day basis it is hard not to really pay attention and get engrossed in the story.
Skinny is a strong novel, and so anything I say about it in my ears it sounds like it could potentially be read in the wrong way, but the flow of the novel is really good. I am liking the characters, and I can't wait till the next part when Ever finally gets her wish. Can't wait to see how it changes her life and her perspective.
