Happily ever after? Or never ever, Ever.
Ever’s mom loved fairy tales, but at fifteen-years-old and weighing 302 lbs, Ever Davies is sure that “happily ever after” was never written for her. She lives under the constant scrutiny of everyone around her, and “Skinny” – the voice in her head – makes sure she never forgets how fat and ugly she is. That is, until Ever decides to take drastic action.
With the help of her long-suffering friend Rat, Ever embarks on the risky, terrifying journey of gastric surgery. But while Ever’s body gradually changes on the outside, she soon finds that changing the person on the inside is much harder. And silencing Skinny is the hardest task of all.
