Skinny by Donna Cooner

I’m thrilled to have been approached to read Skinny by Donna Cooner and then participate in a roundtable discussion afterwards.

Skinny by Donna Cooner

Here’s what they’re saying about Skinny:

You’re fat. HUGE even.  You’re ugly.  No one likes you.  everyone is making fun of you.  You are stupid.  That is all Ever hears from her dark side, the relentless voice in her head who she names “Skinny”.  Ever decides toe shake off this evil little sprite by facing her fears and head on and undergoing weight loss surgery, but will she be able to find the real Ever hiding inside?  This book is truthful and heartfelt, exposing teen’s deepest, darkest fears and pulling them into the light.  Even those who haven’t had Ever’s issues have other real issues of their own–issues that will make them identify with Ever and root for her all the way.

Wow.  Pretty amazing, huh?  I can’t wait to finish it.

I feel a giveaway coming on…!

I think a lot of teenagers can identify with Ever, even adults 🙂 I will definitely put this on my to read list!

I love reading your reviews to find out what is new! This sounds like something I would read.
