    This book is daunting as hell with its page count of 720 and a vague promise of secrets and hidden pain found within the 4 friends who serve as the main characters; their description taken word for word from the book’s blurb, “There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel

    I’ve grown up with fat shaming surrounding me; “he looks like he’s eaten three of his classmates” “she was a little porker” “oh god she’s huge, how disgusting” I’ve grown up with comments aimed at me; “you look seven months pregnant” “look at that little belly” “you really should start exercising” I’ve grown up with

    I’ve always been a reader, inhaling books faster than I could get my hands on them, and they have always shaped me in some way. Similarly to Rory Gilmore, I too carried a book everywhere, and I never cared much about whether it seemed rude to pull a book out at the dinner table. Growing

    You know the feeling you get when music completely takes over your body, and you feel tingles and shivers and goosebumps running through you, down your legs and your arms and your spine, sometimes in your head? If you’re not familiar with this, or you can’t physically feel these sensations, don’t feel too disheartened. I’m
