Oh my heart! Ari’s story is written in verse and is a raw and wonderfully honest look at what it’s like to grow up overweight. The cruelty of other people, the struggle to love oneself, dressing in clothes that don’t fit, the diet book that almost taunts him and is ever in his mind.

With parents that are going through a divorce and Ari’s newfound feeling for his best friend, Lisa, there are a lot of other things happening. Ari’s rabbi adds a gentle touch with his wisdom and caring for a lost soul who desperately needs to feel loved as is.

Ari struggles, and grows, and as his acceptance of self becomes real, we cheer for his triumphant story.

I hope this comes out in audiobook because I want to listen to this one. It’s beautiful.
