    more from this reviewer

    Love Your Family :]

    In the first chapter of this book, you already can't put it down. Curiosity rings your mind and you need to know more. Karen and Donnie's parents are hard to understand, especially when they fight majority of the time. The parents bickering bring Donnie and Karen closer together. These kids know the drill, to run out front to block out the noise of their parents yelling and screaming at each other-because this is their average every day. If you like reading about realistic lives, you should read this book, Skin.

    Simply Amazing

    I've connected with Donnie in this book in so many ways, I've spent my entire life in the background. Left out. Ignored. Forgotten. Left Behind. Invisible. I've spent my entire life taking care of others, just like Donnie, whether they realize it or not. It's just nice to know I'm not the only one. SERIOUSLY RECOMMENDED!

    it is very strong

    Donnie is a teen who is struggling with his existence to others and the survival of his family. He must deal with his sister, Karen's, anorexia. She is the only one he has know to trust and comfort him while his parents are arguing. The bond they share is like no other. He must also try to help keep his parents together. The least of his concerns is himself. Seeing your family fall apart right before your eyes is hard, im glad Donnie is a strong enough person to do all he can. i really like this book. Skin, because it deals with real situations that people struggle with. Donnie takes up the responsibility to help save his sister and his parents.As a teen who is already falling away from society, he tries to do all he can to save his family, afterall they're all he has.

    MUST READ!

    The book I read was Skin by Adrienne Vrettos. It is about a boy named Donnie whose sister, Karen, is suffering from an eating disorder. Donnie has to deal with that, and being an outcast at school, and he has to deal with his parents fighting everyday. While his sister starts to get worse everyday, Donnie tries to help her in any way he can, even if it means him becoming invisible. i love this because it has to do with things that are going on in a teens world. Parents fighting and taking a 'break' and some even dealing with anerxia..and also dealing with the presures of the high food chain..if you cant deal your problems do what i do...read someles.

    I Loved It!

    'Skin' was a book I randomely found on the shelf while shopping with a friend. As I began to read the flap I noticed this was going to be a great one. I was so engulfed in it, I finished within one day. It was very deep and made me think of some issues that happen, and the effects my smallest choices make.
