Pre-Review: Holding up the Universe
So this is the first of this kind that I will do.
I will go ahead and do this for SOME of the books I will be getting my hands on. The reason for this is... Just because its new
At least I hope it new.
So I went ahead and picked this book out without knowing ANYTHING about it buy choosing it because I have heard nothing but good things about this book. I will dive into this book simply on the hype.
That terrifying for me, to be honest, because I tend to only read/want to read books that I am super excited about based solely on the descriptions. This one, I dont even have that.
Onto actually reading the description.
A chubby Libby reminds of Libby from The Avery Shaw Experiment by Kelly Oram xD.
Im actually excited about this book, I feel like there will be so much heartfelt drama and things that I can relate to.
I have high hopes for this book now, based on of course, the hype, and my own ideas based on the description.
Can't wait to dive in.
Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed “America’s Fattest Teen.” But no one’s taken the time to look past her weight to get to know who she really is. Following her mom’s death, she’s been picking up the pieces in the privacy of her home, dealing with her heartbroken father and her own grief. Now, Libby’s ready: for high school, for new friends, for love, and for every possibility life has to offer. In that moment, I know the part I want to play here at MVB High. I want to be the girl who can do anything.
Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin, too. Yes, he’s got swagger, but he’s also mastered the impossible art of giving people what they want, of fitting in. What no one knows is that Jack has a newly acquired secret: he can’t recognize faces. Even his own brothers are strangers to him. 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. So he tells himself to play it cool: Be charming. Be hilarious. Don’t get too close to anyone.
Until he meets Libby. When the two get tangled up in a cruel high school game—which lands them in group counseling and community service—Libby and Jack are both pissed, and then surprised. Because the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel. Because sometimes when you meet someone, it changes the world, theirs and yours.
