Win an ARC of SKINNY by Donna Cooner

Filed under: Book Reviews, Contests, YA Books, Young Adult (YA)

***THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED***

 

I just finished my ARC of SKINNY by Donna Cooner and nice girl that I am, I’m willing to give it away to one lucky winner. Yay! Before I tell you how you can win, here’s a little bit about SKINNY…

Find your voice.

Hopeless. Freak. Elephant. Pitiful. These are the words of Skinny, the vicious voice that lives inside fifteen-year-old Ever Davies’s head. Skinny tells Ever all the dark thoughts her classmates have about her. Ever knows she weighs over three hundred pounds, knows she’ll probably never be loved, and Skinny makes sure she never forgets it.

But there is another voice: Ever’s singing voice, which is beautiful but has been silenced by Skinny. Partly in the hopes of trying out for the school musical—and partly to try and save her own life—Ever decides to undergo a risky surgery that may help her lose weight and start over.

With the support of her best friend, Ever begins the uphill battle toward change. But demons, she finds, are not so easy to shake, not even as she sheds pounds. Because Skinny is still around. And Ever will have to confront that voice before she can truly find her own.

Kimberly’s Review of SKINNY:

Skinny is a story of friendship and courage and it was beautiful. My favorite part of this book was the realization that we all have choices–we can stay in fear or we can step into the light and see what comes our way. I love that.

This contest is opened in the US only. Please remember to put your contact information in your comment. How to win? Tell me what you do to battle the negative voice you sometimes hear inside your own head.
