it was amazing

ALL OF ME is a raw and powerful novel-in-verse about the summer after Ari Rosensweig finishes seventh grade. All his life, Ari has heard and seen and felt this question coming from others: Why are you so fat? His artist mother and often-disappearing father are divorcing. At school, he is bullied, and he desperately wants to fit in.

Ari feels all of this deeply and fully and often so heartbreakingly. And over this summer, while building friendships and testing out a diet and preparing for his belated bar mitzvah with his wonderful rabbi, he wrestles with that paradox of growth: that he cannot change until he accepts and loves himself as he is, flaws, weight, and all. All of himself.
