    I liked this book but in the end it just made me sad and made me a tad bit sad about myself.It just seemed to me though that at the end, she didn t save herself from her insecurities In fact, it seemed to me that she grew worse I wanted her to revel at her achievement, so I could feel good too as a reader but she turned a little bit obsessed and it happened at the end, where I don t know what would happen next.I got the message of the story However, the execution is not something I would say as feel good Yes, it wants to say that we can rise from this problem, but the way the author presents this message is something that I didn t really agree to It was scary the way Rosemary did her tactics to lose weight and in the end people reveled at her change instead of admonishing her to abandon her ways and start to shed fat in the good way If I were part of the story I would have shaken her shoulders and told her to stop it It feels like the birth of another problem I feel the roots of eating disorder lying there somewhere.This book hit close to home I am kind of heavy now My aunt als...

    I inadvertently bought this book not realising that is was a Young Adult book I do wish there was a clearer of categorising the books However I finished it and I found myself empathising so much with Rosie She is overweight, self conscious and without friends at school The school cheerleaders, The Bluebirds, make her life a misery and to find comfort she eats The reader goes through so much with Rosie, her battle to try and get thin, her mother becoming ill, her family constantly nagging her about her weight The bullying is a thing that goes on in every school and for any reason possible, even if a person is normal the bullies will still find something to use This happens to one of the characters in the book, Rosie is kind to her and they become friends, this is such a support for both of the girls.It is a coming of age story, a fight against bullying and a story of a girl coping with her mother s illness.We do not have che...

    Okay, so this book was just really good.In case you think this is another boring fat girl book, it s not I m not overweight, but I have my little things procrastination that make me really horrible when I indulge , and so this book was still very relatable to me.I loved every character and every moment of this book Her mother s personality was so realistic, and the dynamics of the aunt mother daughter relationship was so well presented Also Kyle was completely perfect and a good example of looking beyond outside appearances.I also started wishing my mother owned a beauty shop How cool would that be The detail in this book regarding how Rosemary feels about everything about her body, makes me wonder if the author was ever overweight It is so perfect to how I would assume that would all go down.There s not much else to say, except, go read it Because not only will in inspire you to tackle your own problems, but it will give insight in...

    Though there is a lot of sadness in this book Rosemary s self esteem is in the toilet because she is overweight, and her mom has cancer there is also a lot of humor that made me keep cackling throughout the book Spoiler alert I really love some of Rosemary s awesome comebacks to the snotty Bluebirds and love that she g...

    I picked up this book at the library because I was getting a cold and needed some YA fluff to pass my time It had a positive review on the back from Carolyn Mackler, a YA author whose books I ve really enjoyed, so I got it even though it seemed to be about a fat teenage girl s struggle to lose weight, a topic that few authors have ever handled in a way I can appreciate Although I thought the book was fairly well written and had good attention to setting, it was highly formulaic, and the main character, Rosemary, was not terribly sympathetic She was characterized as an obsessive eater, with chocolate bars stashed all over her room, who regularly binged on things like an entire tuna casserole or a whole bag of chips and a whole jar of salsa She also had rock bottom self esteem Her mom single, had Rosemary at age 17 and her awful aunt size two, always pointing out areas where others need to improve constantly pressure her to lose weight, which she, understandably, resents But then, Rosemary develops a crush on a cute and very large membe...

    Rosemary Goode is an overweight and unpopular teenager with no friends She never really cared or thought about losing weight, until one day an incident happened that opened her eyes, and made her realise that she needs to change her life around We also get to see the rocky relationship Rosemary has with her mum and her aunt, who continuously nag her about losing weight The storyline goes on about her journey to lose weight, build her self confidence, work on her relationship with her family, become a social person and make friends.Artichoke s Heart is a great story, and Rosemary is a very lik...

    Very underwhelmingEDIT I don t really understand what the author s message was I went into this story thinking that this would be the story of a girl with weight struggles who finds a way to love and accept herself, and her body, all while growing and making changes on the inside and out I mean it even says on the book so begins a powerful year of transformation and self discovery that surprisin...

    I think that Rosemary Goode should definitely encourage herself to lose weight but its sometimes hard It s of the mind work than to physically work Its like quitting smoking Sure, you really want to, but you re not really quitting until you actually DO So I see that Rosemary has been taking up to losing weight Her methods include drinking this formula shake called Pounds Away, and finally running on the evil treadmill her mother had bought for 700 I personally think that the running on treadmill thing is gold and that drinking the Pounds Away shake can potentially harming your body The reason I think Rosemary got this fat in the first place is because according to what I read, she eats to numb the feeling And since that her mother doesn t really talk to her much, I realized that her mother was pretty closed up don t like to reveal much Rosie might often feel unloved, leading to her eating disorder problem, and then becoming an addiction to be eating too much food I m also glad Rosie is going to Dr Wallace for therapy because she could really use someone to talk to, considering that her mother is als...
