it was amazing

Ari struggles with his weight. With his family. With preparing for his bar mitzvah. But while Ari struggles, he also triumphs. Succeeds in coming to terms with the imperfections in himself and in the world around him. Ari's journey in ALL OF ME (which I had the privilege of reading as an ARC, pre-publication) is at once familiar and extraordinary. The kind of novel that is needed by--and will be so valuable to--kids uncomfortable in their own skin for any number of reasons. And, speaking on a personal note, ALL OF ME is the kind of novel that I would have benefitted from when I was a kid as well.

Written entirely in verse, Chris Baron's writing glows on every page with the warmth of California in the summer and Ari's kind, genuine self.

I'm so very glad this book exists and future readers will be too.
