What did I think?
What is the Theme?
"When left untreated, any form of disorder, eating or otherwise, has the potential to be fatal"
If I had to think of a moral of the story, I think it would be that your body is important, you need to treat it with respect, don't abuse it, and if you think that there is something wrong with it, then you need to get help. The same goes for those that think that someone that they know is going through something and needs help.
Let's Talk About the Book
Marin: At first, I didn't really like Marin all that much because she seemed kind of stuck up and pretentious to me. But as I read and got to know her, I realized that Marin was actually one of the best friends that Kas could have had. Really, any friend would have helped, but I got the sense that Marin was the sort of person that could understand what Kas was going through and wouldn't judge her
Jacob: I liked Jacob. He was kind of a cool guy and I was happy when he got together with Kas, and I thought that there were a few times where the author really portrayed his feelings well, but I just think that he could have had a bit more page time to develop his character (do yo know what would have helped? A longer book! Wow!)
Kas: What can I say? Kas is the main character. You get to know her the most, she has the most complex character, the most backgrounds, the most thoughts, I mean, the story literally revolves around her. But that doesn't mean that I have to like her. As I said earlier, I think that there was to much self-pity and self-hate for one character (more like for one book), and it just got annoying. It felt like 80% of the book took place inside this characters head. I did not like that. At all. Not enough substantial events actually happened with her. I think I've made my point though, I didn't like Kas all that much. Nuff said.
