Its a solid book about an overweight teenager dealing with life. Mature content. Some reviewers don't like poetry and so gave this book poor reviews based soley on that. I personally loved the style of writing. If you receive this book and you don't like poetry, just put it back on the shelf. It will be a shame to miss out on the goodness of the book, but that is what happens when you literally judge book by cover.
