Fipps' debut novel written in verse confronts body shaming. This novel is poignant and a reminder how much middle school age children (all ages really) suffer at the hands of bullies -- especially those labeled "fat". In this novel, the bullies are classmates, strangers, but also teachers and parents. Some adults ignore the teasing Ellie endures, but others, even her own mother, make cruel remarks about her weight and body. Ellie turns to her father and her therapists and understanding friends to eventually push back against the bullying. Readers see her begin to like herself. The author notes that this was originally a YA book, but decided to change aspects of the book for a younger audience. This book is for middle schoolers - but would recommend older middle school. ( )

2024 reading challege: award winner, novel in verse, body positivity.

children's audio fiction (3.5 hrs) - ~4th-9th grade? (has appeal to wide range of ages inckuding teens)

fat tween Ellie with fat-disapproving mom (Christian, trying to help her daughter in the best way she knows how and perhaps not aware of how much her words and actions hurt) and working dad (Jewish, pushing for therapy over surgery, which actually helps with the bullying issues, etc.). Set in Texas.

short chapters (in verse, though you can't tell in the audio version) make an enjoyable, highly readable story that bring this little big girl (tween) to life. Narration is great ( I sped it up to 1.15-1.2x speed). Relatively short, but with so much crammed in -- a complex mother-daughter relationship (keep tissues handy), a developing friendship with another bullied student (who is himself bullied), and a healthier sense of self thanks to a fabulous therapist. More books like this, please! ( )

Look at that cute cover!!!! Don't you want to swim with this friend?
Instead of a joyful swim romp, the poems all centered on the horrible abuse this child suffered from doctors, parents, and peers about her weight. I stopped to protect myself from the trauma and DO NOT RECOMMEND this book to anyone, especially children. ( )

The way I feel about this book is very similar to how I felt about [b:Genesis Begins Again|25753113|Genesis Begins Again|Alicia D. Williams|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1536296273l/25753113._SY75_.jpg|45596012]. It's just too depressing for me. I had to put it down and walk away.

There is nothing subtle about the way Ellie is bullied at school and at home and in public. It's just like sledgehammer after sledgehammer of emotional brutality.

I'm sure by the end of the book Ellie stands up to her bullies and feels better about herself. But the first half of the book was too cringe-inducing for me to want to take that journey with her. ( )

Heart-breaking and beautiful at the same time. ( )
