Starfish is a book that every girl who feels overweight and self conscious needs to read. This book hit home as growing up my mom would always tell me I needed to loose weight. I connected with the character as always feeling vulnerable and conscious of what you ate in front of others. Our main character Ellie is a strong female who had conquered so much with little encouragement from her family. I loved the writing style as it was written in verse and the way the words had flowed through the pages. The friendship that is represented showed what a true friend is like. I love how the author didn’t sugar coat anything and showed how rude children can be towards others. At points I got so mad and sad for our character feeling that it was real. I’m so glad this book is out into the world because I know I wish I had read this when I was young. I also want to notate how cute this cover is!
