Book That Has Been On My WIshlist for A long Time:

Skinny by Donna Cooner:

SkinnyFind your voice.

Hopeless. Freak. Elephant. Pitiful. These are the words of Skinny, the vicious voice that lives inside fifteen-year-old Ever Davies’s head. Skinny tells Ever all the dark thoughts her classmates have about her. Ever knows she weighs over three hundred pounds, knows she’ll probably never be loved, and Skinny makes sure she never forgets it.

But there is another voice: Ever’s singing voice, which is beautiful but has been silenced by Skinny. Partly in the hopes of trying out for the school musical—and partly to try and save her own life—Ever decides to undergo a risky surgery that may help her lose weight and start over.

With 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.
Hardcover, 272 pages
Expected publication: October 1st 2012 by Scholastic (first published January 1st 2012).


  1. Thanks for posting this, it's on my wishlist now. I 'm really fascinated with eating disorders and the like of that and I haven't found many novels on it. Also keep trying harder for your 2012 reading challenge, it's tough, and I won't say for you to read like the wind, and not like any but it's really rewarding when you see how many books you've read in a year.

    1. Yea I like the book as well and yes I have to read more books is just hard to balance school and reading books :/
