But more than that, this is a book about letting people see who you really are, and admitting when you need help. But we ask for diverse and complex books/characters, then moan when a 'controversial' topic is raised.

Review: Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven (Proof) - Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed 'America's Fattest Teen'. Jennifer is at work on her fourth and fifth novels for young adults, with number three-- Breathless just out now.One day, I decided to share some of my opinions on some great - and not so great - books to people around the world.

A couple years back Libby had gained so much weight that she needed to be rescued from her house to be saved. I applaud that she shows how the two teens with these unique experiences come together in a relationship of some form (again: bare bones intention of the narrative). Pero cuando el destino lo une a Libby comenzará a ver todo de manera diferente y aceptar lo inimaginable. The dance is in her, as she says, and she dreams of joining the high school's dance troupe and applies to audition. Niven's honest writing shares a story of friendship, confidence, strength, and identity--and it's not one to be missed .

It plays into the bullying and belittling dialogues about people who are overweight rather than allowing people to love themselves for who they are, no matter their weight. Thus, as stereotypical as those students could be, they noticed her in her first day of school after she locked herself up in the bedroom, lying on the bed, doing nothing but reading and eating for years.

I guess it’s actually from one of Jennifer’s interviews videos on YouTube, where she “dropped” some of her favorite books randomly on the streets, near the telephone booth, or beside a statue in London. Jennifer Niven is the author of the New York Times and international bestseller All the Bright Places. He knows his brother’s hair style, and he can tell his other brother by his ears, but the system is not flawless.Once dubbed "America's Fattest Teen," when she weighed 653 pounds at her heaviest and had to be cut out of her childhood home while the media watched, she's spent the last two years being home schooled while she recovered. It turns out that Libby and Jack are pushed together by being in a group after school for being bad. He's the guy who can re-engineer and rebuild anything, but he can't understand what's going on with the inner workings of his brain. Jack didn't want to bully Libby, he felt sick at the very thought, but he was genuinely worried about what his friends would do to her, how far they would go, if he wasn't the one who "played the game" (I'm not going to talk about it, you can read it, it's just too awful to give words to. I don't say this to denigrate Niven's new book in any way—I think with this book she set out to tell a different and more personal story, yet one with slightly more universal themes.
