really liked it
bookshelves: stars-4

This was so powerful and so heartbreaking. I definitely recommend this to all people, but do read the trigger warnings and know that this book isn't perfect, I did have some issues with it.

I've always considered myself plus size bc I find it difficult to find my clothing size in stores and I'm well, bigger. But, I get the feeling the author wouldn't give a shit about my struggles bc I'm smaller than she is & her struggle are "worse" than mine."
