Even though I'm beyond the Young Adult Fiction category in which this book falls, IT WAS SUCH A GOOD READ!!

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Amazon Children's Publishing and NetGalley.) “I march into the kitchen and pop a couple of the double-chocolate cupcakes into my mouth. I snap off a pudding cup from the pack in the fridge. I peel away the top. After three spoonfuls, I scrape the bottom of the plastic cup. I go for another and another. Before I realise it, I’ve eaten the entire six-pack.” This was quite a shocking story about an overweight girl and her life. “You’re one little piggy. Inhaling your food again?” I felt really sorry for Sugar in this story, she was bullied relentlessly, and not just by kids at school, but by her own mother and brother! Both of them behaved absolutely disgustingly, and her brother ‘Skunk’ deserved to go to jail for the things he did in this book. “Look what you did fatty.” The storyline in this was about Sugar’s life, and the bullying she went through, and her thougts and feelings towards food. I have to say that not only was the bullying shocking, but so were Sugar’s eating habits, partly because they really reminded me of my own eating habits. So not good! “I plow through my Twinkie stash and, before I know it, I hardly remember what they tasted like.” We did get a bit of romance, and I thought Sugar and Even were pretty sweet together. “You’re a beautiful person, Shoog. Don’t let anyone, not even the people you think you’re supposed to trust, tell you different.” There was a very sad twist in this story that was quite upsetting, it totally changed the direction the story was heading in, as well as poor Sugar’s life. 7 out of 10
