Author: K.A. Barson
Reviewer: Emily S
Your only aunt is getting married in ten weeks and you are in the wedding. The only problem - 45 pounds. You must lose 45 pounds within that time.
KA Barson takes you through the age-old problem of weight loss in the realistic fiction book, 45 Pounds. You will be entertained with Ann's struggles. You can connect to this book because there is always something we struggle with. But, I found myself connecting to the story because I had a struggle with something, and I set goals for myself and got help. I love Ann's midnset and I hope I can be ambitious like her.
This book is great for anyone who loves realistic fiction. The author helps you feel the pain Ann is feeling. Her weight issues, her struggle with her over-obsessive mom, and her challenge of picking her friends because of her size are many issues that girls today face. We all have problems - but the struggle is the same.
