To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I felt so much pain for this young girl as I read her story, and I have always been thin. Nothing about this book surprised me—except for the fact that Ellies was so resilient and spirited, that she made the adults look at themselves and the mess they'd made so directly. An important and inspiring book about overcoming the shame and facing fat-shaming culture head on.
