Book Review #113- Paperweight by Meg Haston

Rate from 1 -5: 5

Reason : This book is about a girl suffering from an eating disorder and it gets so bad, she has gets admitted into a treatment facility for this disorder. I’ve gotta say, the book was very strong. That the book gave off this powerful vibe that I can’t just shake over. This girl has gone through a lot of stuff, but realizes she needs to get better. A lot of books that I’ve read that involve rehab/treatment facility always have some type of romance going on. I guess that the romance made the story a little less emotional, more like in the future this character will get their happily ever after. This book doesn’t have this romance. It’s unique.

Summary: Seventeen-year-old Stevie is trapped. In her life. And now in an eating-disorder treatment center on the dusty outskirts of the New Mexico desert.

Life in the center is regimented and intrusive, a nightmare come true. Nurses and therapists watch Stevie at mealtime, accompany her to the bathroom, and challenge her to eat the foods she’s worked so hard to avoid.

Her dad has signed her up for sixty days of treatment. But what no one knows is that Stevie doesn’t plan to stay that long. There are only twenty-seven days until the anniversary of her brother Josh’s death—the death she caused. And if Stevie gets her way, there are only twenty-seven days until she too will end her life.
