TERRIFIED OUT OF MY SKULL I wait for the panic attack to come Andf course we all know when she gets to school the jerkholes start bullying her I hate them so much I could just scream But Libby is a

Worries other means You can read the book and findut When Libby was little she lived across the street from three boys and I loved it because she called them Sam Dean and Cas She loved the show Supernatural too They were her The Downs Syndrome Handbook only friends well friends in her head Until that day she was taken from her home by crane and moved away The story goes back and forth to things that happened in the past to the present And it wasn t confusing at all I m surprised because I get confused easy It turnsut that Libby and Jack are pushed together by being in a group after school for being bad Then they start to get to know each Club Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, other and it s so fun and it s so wonderful They help eachther And yeah some sad stuff happens but it all works When All Hell Breaks Loose out in the end And let me tell you there isne part where Libby stands up to the whole school in such a way that I cried my eyes Hell Fire (Corine Solomon, out I wish I could add the excerpt like thether Friscos Kid (Tall, Dark Dangerous, ones but it sne you should read for yourself I just love her Did I say that already This book makes me feel sad mad and good Libby makes me feel good for so many reasons and that s enough for me I will read this many times and get some inspiration from Libby I wish I had a friend like her The saddest part is I almost didn t read this book because SOG of so many negative reviews It does have a lotf good reviews but now I don t care what people think I read what I want and I m glad I found a gem that works for ME I got this print book through the BloggingForBooks ProgramMY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading List REREAD I fell in love with this book allll Seven Bad Ideas over again I adore Libby I adore what she stands for I love what this book stands for The hope it instills How personal it is to the author and how appreciative I am that she shared her story with us I m rooting for this book I m rooting for myself I m rooting for all the readers who have ever felt less than As Libby would say about herself I am magic and so as are you Initial reviewI m sure a lotf you will remember the ton Alien Diplomacy (Katherine Kitty Katt, of backlash this book received when the blurb was revealed I mean let s not get into that aspectf people having the audacity to judge and write Togo off a book when they haven t read a single pagef it It s aggravating to the coreSo having read the book yes there is a lot Bikini of fat shaming that s mentioned throughout the book Fat shaming that the main character has to deal with ie the bullying she goes through becausef her weight But also the main character fat shaming herself because Better of her insecurity as a direct resultf the bullies and Slakes Limbo other factors I personally don t see how this is a problem to bring to light this sortf issue Yes it was slightly uncomfortable to read at times making it real and raw But we ask for diverse and complex bookscharacters then moan when a controversial topic is raised This is exactly the kind f realistic bullshit some people unfortunately have to deal with as ugly as it may seem As well as the insecurity and the mental health issues that come alongside it I don t understand how it was even assumed that the author was ridiculing people who deal with weight and mental health problems If perhaps they d waited a little longer for some clarification and did their research they d have known that this topic is uite personal to the author But that s not all that the personal to the author But that s not all that the is about Yes the character struggles with her weight she s insecure to an extent but she s absolutely fuckin strong She s almost sure about who she is As sure as a teenager can be She refuses to let her weight define her stand in her way f her dreams and fights the fuck back against anyone that dares to ridicule her And she s happy dammit This element is what made the book for me She was headstrong to begin with because she made herself be so Though there are romantic aspects her problems didn t magically disappear because there was a guy in her life But she refused to hide her true self Because Straight Up and Personal: The World According to Grapes of this I feel that this book is so empowering A book that those who feel that can relate to Libby can find strength in Though Libby encompasses aspectsf her personality that may contradict The Killing Season (Trail of the Gunfighter, or clash ie being insecure yet not giving a flying fuck about anyone it s a great message thatne can take away You re never fully Saving Sweetness oner the ther anyway This is what I personally got from this re never fully ne Modern Love or thether anyway This is what I personally got from this I guess like every Bad Day in Blackrock other book people will interpret it differently according to theirwn understanding and worldview And this is mine Initial review Okay wow It s 4am Read this book in less than a day My heart is floating I m dying with feels I was not expecting to love this book so much Edit Looks like they updated the synopsis I hope this book is less ffensive than the synopsis.
