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

Admittedly books about weight loss and the challenge of living with extra weight have a lot to live up to when I read them I know it s a bias But there are also many thresholds that need to be met regardless of my own bias toward them Unfortunately this one was not satisfyingWhen Ever is 15 she s over 300 pounds She grief eats as a way of dealing with losing her mother years ago This is never really explained or explored and it s definitely not emotionally compelling We just need to accept that she shovels down candy and that s how it goes No further back story The real problems begin though when suddenly Ever s approved for gastric bypass There s talk about how she has tried dieting before and tried working out except we never see this struggle There s no counseling no nutritional education no keeping a food diary It s straight from 0 to risky surgery The surgery happens uickly and in no time view spoiler Ever has lost weight and now has the attention of popular people at school She gets made over She gets the boy Oh turns out the boy who was friends with her forever had been in love with her forever and losing the weight for him was silly because he loved her at any size Of course It s the classic make over story This time it s not just about a hair cut though It s about a complete body transformation hide spoiler Never Deny a Duke (Decadent Dukes Society, the words of Skinny The Sphinx the vicious voice Tidelands (Fairmile that lives inside fifteen year old Ever Davies’s head Skinny Pretty Lucy Merwyn tells Ever all Strings the dark Carnal Sacrifice (Brides of Caralon, thoughts her classmates have about her Ever knows she weighs over Catch and Release three hundred pounds knows she’ll probably never.
