I related so deeply to Leviton, it was overwhelming. I wanted to read this book all the time because I felt like I was gaining a lot of insight into myself. (I have also alienated people who do not see conversation as exchanges of information but will take me replying to their story with a similar story of my own as oneupmanship rather than empathy.) I love books about growth, discovery, self-awareness, and therapy, and this book has all of those things! (Family Therapy Camp. Oh my god. Please everyone read this so we can just say to each other, "Family Therapy Camp!" and die.) Savvy’s story is a welcome one in today’s YA market and will help spread a much-needed message to teens about parental mental health issues and the potential dangers of diet culture." — School Library Journal, starred reviewIf you are a normal person, this book might be very uncomfortable, because it basically accuses you of lying constantly. And, well, it is not entirely wrong. If you actually pay attention to all the ways we evade and avoid, we do an awful lot of lying. It is much more socially acceptable to lie than to be truthful. So perhaps it is grating to read something that calls you out, even if you think you're doing it the better way. I honestly could not tell you. All I can say is that if you are an oversharing honest weirdo who cries whenever you feel strong emotion, then you will like this book.
