the classic case of ‘i can appreciate this book for the story that it is, but it definitely didnt live up to its potential. How she's treated does affect her, and she does doubt whether going to high school rather than continuing with home schooling was wise, but she strengthens her resolve, and keeps going. And Libby challenges stereotypes; she's a big girl, but she's an incredibly fast runner, and this girl can dance. If a genie popped out of my bedside lamp, I would wish for these three things: my mom to be alive, nothing bad or sad to ever happen again, and to be a member of the Martin Van Buren High School Damsels, the best drill team in the tristate area. Each time he sees someone, he has to try and figure out who they are, and he's not always successful, which leads to more uncomfortable situations than he'd like.

I sincerely felt unconvinced of the relationship between Libby and Jack, even long after I finished the last page of the book. Yes, the character struggles with her weight, she's insecure to an extent, but she's absolutely fuckin' strong! The main reason I was drawn to this book was because last year, I read All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven; fell in love and then had my heart broken into a million pieces. The crane: This has been a reality for so many people who are very overweight so why can't it be wrote about or shown in movies! of course i could be wrong and this book could end up being a fucking mess that is super offensive, but this is just my thoughts on the synopsis.to fall in love with each other and it's so blatantly obvious even if the characters have next to no chemistry and are "instaplaced" with each other - there's your problem right there. But they each give each other something they have never had before, and oh my god, their moments together and how they think of each other, it's just so, so beautiful. If people don’t like it I’ll be like Libby and prove that just because your big doesn’t mean it should affect friendships and relationships! Now, Libby's ready: for high school, for new friends, for love, and for Every possibility life has to offer.

It’s about a special guy who sees a special girl not because of her physical weight but of her inner weight, because she has the biggest heart, because she matters greatly. What if you get to school and realize that things are different and kids are different, and no matter how much you try, you will never be able to catch up to them? At once hilarious and achingly poignant, Jennifer Niven's Holding up the Universe brims with love and heart and hope.He once screamed that his mom was kidnapping him because she had gotten a haircut and he didn't have the familiar markers to place her in his mind. I felt the film glorified the death even more and turned it into a kind of thirteen reasons why crossed with Romeo and Juliet. Yes, it does show the prejudice and ostracism and isolation and self-loathing/fear the characters feel, but I don't feel like the narrative does a good job with actually DEALING with the complexity of those experiences and why they are, where they come from without dictation.

I’ve decided to review my least favorite book ever (at least for the moment) because I like to torture myself apparently. All this fuss over a girl who, if we’re being honest, looked so much like Caroline Lushamp that—at least at first—I thought it was her, which means in some weird way Caroline should be flattered.

This book is really interesting, because at the heart, it's a romance, but Jack and Libby have their own individual stories and struggles, too.

I mean, she’s proving to everyone that she isn’t that girl who scarfed all the junk food down her throat nonstop and gave up on herself but instead, she’s already stepped out of her comfort zone and decided to blend into the rest of them. The other main character (I don´t even remember his name) has a condition that should be interesting to read about.I can see that whenever they talk, they’re living in their private bubble and nobody in the world can interrupt their conversation nor can anyone deprive them of their borrowed freedom. Written in short chapters of alternating perspectives, this is a thoughtful exploration of identity and self-acceptance, with commentary on overcoming adversities that will hit close to home. If you wanted to get back at me for breaking up with you, then congratulations, jerkwad, you’ve done it. Also with respect to Jack's condition, he's struggling to make sense of it and come to terms with it, but I also felt like there were sections of the narrative that weren't paced well and repetitious to his experiences to where it kept throwing me out of the narrative despite his emotional upheavals and conflicts.
