Holding Up the Universe

holding-up-the-universeWritten by Jennifer Niven

This is definitely a unique story. Libby, once known as America’s “fattest teen,” and Jack, who can’t remember anyone’s face, even his own. Two kids trying their best to fit in high school with insecurities of their own, but putting on a good show on the outside. I liked the character development thoroughout the book. It’s a real, honest and heart wrenching story.
