it was amazing
bookshelves: 2019, kids

There is something almost kaleidoscopic about this novel in verse, which beautifully layers themes of loss, friendship, acceptance and emotional growth.

Ari is a boy unhappy in his own skin. Although he struggles with a cross-country move and his parents’ relationship problems, the main thing that troubles Ari is his weight—there’s too much of it. When he becomes a target, he embarks on a diet, and many changes ensue.

Although some of this book is about what Ari hopes to lose, it is also very much about everything he gains, especially his friendships. Ari is lovable (even if he doesn’t know it!) and his story is important and relatable. Highly recommended.
