Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - This sounds really interesting. I like that you pointed out that the author handled the subject in a way that stood out and was different from what has been done before – it makes me curious enough to give this one a try, despite the tough subject it tackles.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Very nice review! Just read this myself and I agree on a lot of things here. I actually felt lost in the first half of the book reading it in the third person. I felt a little too on the outside and didn’t see myself making connections with anyone until halfway through. I really liked the growing friendship between Sethie and Janey (I agree, totally had my doubts about Janey at first too!) – And I also liked to see a side of eating disorders and body image that isn’t so extreme. I’ve actually seen a few of my friends go through this so the topic was extremely relatable and not overdone at all.
