A rare five stars. This book should be on every middle grade reading list!

This was so powerful and hit so close to home. This book does a great job of highlighting the power of not just words, but friendship, a support system, and finding your inner voice. A must read for any fat girl who feels like they will never fit, and any parent raising an overweight child. This is also an important book for a world that loves to reduce people to thier skin and makes them ashamed of existing, the bullies, the harsh doctors, and those that may consider themselves "well meaning."

The topic is a hard and toxic one, and this book takes it on without flinching. For me, the verse format made it easier to confront the awful way that Ellie's family and school treats her. I loved that she had great friends. I loved that she had access to water. I loved the teachers and librarian who helped her, and I loved that this book has a therapist -- even knowing what therapy could be like and some techniques to take power back is going to help a lot of readers. I wonder why it took her dad so long to become an ally, but it was good to see Ellie come into her own and challenge her bullies. ( )

This book in verse details a journey of self acceptance as Sarah endures bulling from peers and family members alike. She builds trust in a new neighbor, a new counselor, and understanding that her size does not determine her worth.

What I Loved:

While Sarah experiences trauma and abuse that comes with being invalidated because of her weight, she is able to step outside of her own pain to recognize the pain of others. Particularly, her new friend lives in a multi generational hispanic family and experiences different treatment because of it. Having a character practicing awareness of privileges they do have doesn't invalidate their pain, but helps readers understand that struggling is universal.

What I Missed:

I would have loved to see more role models that looked like her. I know the author based this book on her experience growing up- but one thing that was missing from my similar experience was someone with a body like mine who was confident enough to take up space, instead of having a character come to that adult conclusion at the end.

Starfish is about a middle school girl who is overweight and is bullied relentlessly by her schoolmates, as well as her brother, sister, and mother. Ellie feels like she deserves the bullying and is desperate for acceptance for her she is. She confides in her dad, and he promises to help her. Her mother wants her to have bariatric surgery (at 11!), but Ellie's dad promises that won't happen. Ellie does have some friends who are good to her and she finds a therapist who helps her to get in touch with her feelings and confront her mother.
My heart broke for Ellie over and over. The meanness of people is astonishing and I know it happens. I think this is an important book for children and adults to read as it may help them to understand how hurtful their criticisms are, and perhaps will change their attitudes.
I am thankful that the author wrote this book, and am sorry that she herself experienced these hurtful people and comments. ( )

I listened to Starfish on audio- the first time I have done this with a book in verse- and was truly blown away by Ellie's journey toward loving her body. This is a book that will break your heart over and over again; Ellie faces bullying at fat shaming at school, and even from some of those closest to her, like her mother and brother. Ellie's tenuous relationship with her mother is a focal point of the book. There are some truly bright spots in Starfish as well- the book is very pro-therapy, and Ellie's friend Catalina and her family are so generous, kind, and supportive.

This has been one of my favorite reads this year. It is a perfect way for kids to learn that fat is beautiful, that it's important to have a healthy relationship with food, and that they deserve to be treated with kindness and have their autonomy respected. ( )
