Essentially this depicts an insufferable teenage girl who somehow thinks that if she were Skinny then all her problems would be solved These problems ultimately stem from grief although this backstory is never actually explained so it s certainly never emotionally compelling So in order to render her life all hunky dory once , said insufferable teenage girl called Ever, named for the fairy tales her mother loved so much oh, puh lease decides that a potentially life threatening gastric bypass is the way to go She s instantly approved for the surgery and it all goes ahead without her batting an eyelid.
What I found the most irresponsible was the fact that Donna Cooner made it clear that Ever was not undergoing surgery for her health there is one transient mention of high blood pressure , but to win th High school is hell I remember the horror of being a teen aged girl Few of us were comfortable in our skin, justifiably so We felt ugly We had uni brows, bad skin, horrendous hair and less than perfect bodies Ever Davies high school experience is worse She has struggled with her weight for as long as she can remember, but she did it alongside her cherished mother Five years after losing her mom, it is clear that Ever stopped fighting She is 5 6 and weighs 302 pounds This is why people think terrible thoughts about her Ever knows what everyone is thinking, the Goth fairy on her should named Skinny , tells her People are disgusted by her obesity Her two step sisters acknowledge her only when her assistance is needed Jackson, a boy that was one of her best friends growing up, stopped speaking to her years Spot on about the issue of obestity among teens Experiencing the interior monologues that go through Evers thoughts really creates insight into the mind of addiction The book does not glamorize gastric by pass but presents the nitty gritty of the surgery The book tackles bigger issues about self esteem and the self doubt that all teens experience.
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 case.
Okay, 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 there.
No 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 procedure.
Ignoring the name Ever, You can find reviews BloodyBookaholic 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.
Ever, SkinnyThe first time I wanted to read this book was in a Scholastic event where the author along with some other helpers played out the dialogue in the story out loud for the audience From what heard from those few paragraphs I was intrigued I got the book Back at home, on a whim, I took it out off it s place in line in my TBR pile and read the back The I read the first page, and the second page, and the third page soon enough I was hooked.
The story undeniably has it s cheesy parts From the predictable, Cinderella loosely based, overall plot, to the traditional high school experiences being ac The book Skinny is purely an amazing book as in how it describes the challenges Ever faced with her weight This book helped me I feel because, I have always struggled with my wait and the voice of Skinny in my head With the realization of the voice in Ever s head always putting her down when it really blocked her view on life and the way people judged her, Evers realization was that it was not others who were putting her down, but her self Rat, he loved her at 302 pounds and he still loves her at 179 Rat is one of the most supporting characters in this book, he pushes Ever to push herself to try out for the musical, to lose weight, and to find herself I feel Skinny opened up a chapter that I had closed, the chapter contained on how I I loved the book Skinny I think every teenage girl should read it Skinny is the voice inside of Ever s head Ever is an obese 15 year old who just wants to escape high school The voice in her head tells her everything she doesn t want to hear Skinny tells her what her classmates and family think of her They call her a cow and a fatty She was Skinny when she was young, but it when her mother died of cancer she figured she didn t have a reason to stay Skinny any But when her stepsister, Briella, tells her about an overweight teen that went through a gastric bypass surgery and lost a lot of weight afterwards she starts to consider it She decides to go through with the surgery She thinks with her best friend, Rat by her side she can do a 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 satisfying.
When 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 ha I read this book a while ago and I m just getting around to rating it lol whoops
