However, I can’t connect to her at all by the means she uses so the whole scene looks a bit out of place for me.

This is exactly the kind of realistic bullshit some people unfortunately, have to deal with, as ugly as it may seem. I’m actually really proud of myself for finishing this even though I did skim read the last 25% of it. 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. I also admit that I wondered whether someone like Jack would actually find himself falling for a girl who still weighed 350 pounds, and that distracted me a little bit. She’s spent a lot of her young adult life getting healthy and she is nowhere near thin, but she’s happy with herself.so is it fair to judge a different book by the same author when you know they are capable of doing better? She has also written four novels for adults-- American Blonde, Becoming Clementine, Velva Jean Learns to Fly, and Velva Jean Learns to Drive --as well as three nonfiction books-- The Ice Master, Ada Blackjack, and The Aqua Net Diaries, a memoir about her high school experiences. You’re telling me that this bitch who constantly talks about being fat is complaining that her other fat friend talks about her weight a lot.

Jennifer Niven's deeply compelling and highly successful first teen novel All The Bright Places was very much for an older audience with its themes of depression and suicide.

the "lifted out of her house by a crane"/other uses of fat as an insult: like i said, probably misguided. e. being insecure, yet not giving a flying fuck about anyone — it's a great message that one can take away. Libby may give Jack a nudge in the right direction with her support, but it's Jack who takes the initiative to finally get himself tested, to understand more about his brain, and to, eventually, come to terms with it.
