Well that was NOTHING like I expected I didn t know anything about this one going into it From the first few pages the shocking and graphic content had me speeding through the chapters disliking ElizabethLizBeth depends on the point in time until the very last page where I actually just felt so sorry for her She goes from an obese teenager desperate for attention in forms of online dating and her 40 year old boss to a thin young adult obsessed with food and gravely unhappy I wasn t sure about this book while I was reading it it s uncomfortable to the point where it s not enjoyable It s like an accident and you can t look away You just keep staring and in this case flipping the pages In retrospect however it s pretty darn powerful Anyone that s struggled with body image issues will likely relate to at least one of the thirteen essays taken from different moments in Beth s life The world is a scary place to live for young girls these days And our minds Even scarier

review ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ò Mona Awad Read & Download 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl µ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Mona Awad Ò 0 review T Mona Awad simultaneously skewers the body image obsessed culture that tells women they have no value outside their physical appearance and delivers a tender and moving depiction of a lovably difficult young woman whose life is hijacked by her struggle to conform As caustically funny as it is heartbreaking 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl introduces a vital new voice in ficti. Awad seems to have written this book to capture every single negative stereotype about women of all sizes in one fell swoop fat women are all bitter unhealthy maladjusted try hards thin women are all vapid or bitchy or vapid and bitchy those in between are frumpy unattractive pathetic things that are barely worth mentioning To try and better yourself is pathetic and senseless according to Awad but to accept yourself and let yourself go is even so There isn t even a point to this Awad isn t telling us anything we don t already know that women can never do right that there is no correct way to exist as Woman without the scrutiny of others and she isn t offering a solution No she s reveling in this miserable pit of a story like Lizzie s mother accuses her of doing with her depression in her teenage years she isn t confronting the way women self objectify themselves perpetuating the male gaze even in the absence of men She isn t confronting the treacherous way women navigate self image under duress in this day and age She isn t confronting the fraught relationships women have with one another I m sure that s what she intended with this book but what she actually did was simply show us a miserable wretched woman who spends her life hating herself and every woman around her That s itThis is not a funny story There is very very little wit and absolutely no bright spark of humor I don t know what book the reviewers read because it wasn t the one I did the only real saving graces of this book are that it is mercifully short and Awad s prose is smooth enough to rip through uickly If I d had to spend much longer on this I would have simply put it down

    PDF/EBOOK (13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl) There's a lot of truth in this book like it or not but I did not find it hilarious nor did I find Lizzie lovableIn this time of almost viral fat shaming and girls and women obsessed with body image it is certainly relevant to tell a story of one whose entire life has been defined by her weight and self loathingIt was just such a dark read though perhaps worthwhile for some needing to take a closer look at how
