I'm A Book Shark

Freelance copyeditor to all amazing self-published and independent authors. Check out my editing page for more information. <3 Mickey is the blogger behind I’m A Book Shark. She really wishes there was a better explanation for why she’s a book shark. A new twitter name was needed, and it had to be about her favorite hobby: reading! For whatever reason, sharks also came to mind, and a book shark was born. Besides reading, Mickey is a natural reddish-headed, late-twenties, tattooed, entertainment-of-all-kinds lover, wife of husband, mother of reptiles (and a cat and two puppies, all spoiled), student, employee, boss, and (mostly) raw vegan. Oh yeah, and she likes to blog. www.imabookshark.com

I enjoyed this one. Even with its sad material, I liked to see the change in Ever. She grows throughout this book immensely. There's little to no swearing if I remember correctly, and there's no sexual content, so this is pretty decent for even the younger set. Ever is a smart girl, but she's confused and bullied because of her weight. She decides on gastric bypass surgery to help her lose weight because she's very heavy for her age and height. This is her journey. It's pretty inspirational with her bravery and courage. I'd recommend this one because it's a fairly short, quick read with some hope and inspiration. Enjoy!
