When I first saw the cover of Skinny, I immediately decided this
After doing some thinking, I understood why she felt pity for herself. The voice inside her head, Skinny, is the most unsupportive person, or actually a voice, can be. It's not mentioned in the book, but I understood Ever's psychological problem. That's how the voice inside her head developed, and it grew to the point that even Ever gave the voice a name. That's when I realized that the characters felt real, even though it wasn't clarified of who or what "Skinny" is. Moving to her friend, Rat, he was a very fun character to read about. The only problem was that Donna Cooner didn't really provide any history about how the two of them got to meet each other and etc. Honestly, the story did get better towards reading, because I liked how Ever's attitude towards her body changed, and she started feeling more confident about herself. (Yay)
Overall, it wasn't a book I could compare to "Wintergirls", but it was still a fun read. Even though somethings were expected, it was still a good read that I would recommend to a friend. Really teaches people to be more confident about who they are, and what they look like. I also really liked Donna Cooner's style of writing, so i'll be waiting for her next novel.

"Skinny" by Donna Cooner was some read definitely a powerful one. This novel is of a journey taken as this young lady under goes surgery to reduce her weight. Wow, I can only say what amusing novel this one is! This author has choose a wonderful topic that has troubled us forever...obesity of the childhood...and I think she did a good job at accurately bringing out the pros and cons of weight loss surgery. There was definitely a positive message that this book delivers.. for Ms. Cooner.. the author was a gastric bypass patient herself. Ms. Cooner offers us a beautiful novel about over coming ones insecurities and getting rid of that voiced that says 'you aren't good enough and skinny enough for anything! Be ready to be taken on a long journey where demons will be faced.
Be ready to laugh and even cry....but in the end after reading "Skinny" showing much bravery and courage...and I would recommend this one as a good quick read.
