Book Review: Skinny (Donna Cooner)

skinnyEver Davies is a fifteen-year-old girl who weighs over 302 pounds. But she has a reason to be fat. When her mom died, she tried to eat as much candy as her mouth could hold, to forget the sadness of her mom’s death.

At school kids make fun of her and call her names. One day Ever tries to have a weight loss surgery. After the surgery she loses 17 pounds every week. She loses more pounds, until she becomes pretty and SKINNY.

At last Ever tries out for a musical for the role of Cinderella. She gets the role because of her beautiful singing voice.

This book shows us that anything is possible if you believe in yourself! I recommend it to everyone!
