I read this book for the message, which is one I thought I would enjoy hearing. Unfortunately I should have known that this genre is just not for me. I don't deal with real-life books well. They make me cry - and I hate crying. Despite the heart-wrenching middle, I still loved the ending of this book. It had a beautiful moral and was perfectly written, and that's why I gave it four stars. I don't think I've ever liked a book from this genre as much as I loved this one.

I love this book. It has so much value. This book and he character Ever have inspired me to not gain weight and loose some weight. Its just a phenomenal novel. I will always remember and love this book.

This was the best book I have ever read. It was sad in the beginning but got less sad towards the end.

This was a really good book but it needed some more thought and attention. Ever is a great thought-of character but everything is not in detail. The concept and self-esteem learning is great, though.

If Ever isn't the WHINIEST book character ever, I don't know who is. The message behind the novel gets lost in her petty teenage ways. I was driven to the point of frustration, where I wanted to stop reading the book. It's a predictable teen novel, and if you're into that you'll love it.
