i really wanted to like this, but i couldn't. i always find eating disorder books fascinating because of the psychological aspect but this one wasn't doing it for me. I guess I wanted to see something different and this book was too predictable. Fatter, not as pretty sister who feels jealous of the outgoing skinny sister? That's been done. Insecure sister covets popular sister's boyfriend? That's been done too. But it was all done all over again in this book. Even the ending, which I'm sure was supposed to be sad, didn't move me very much, which is surprising since I have a dear friend with an eating disorder.
it was slow. it wasn't original.
