My rating: 2/5
Dear fat people,
Hmmm… I didn’t mean to say something ugly about fat people… That’s just a line I found over and over again in this book. And it’s a little bit improper for my liking. Fat people might be offended when they read this book.
The first thing I want to say about this book is I DISLIKE GRAY LACHMAN SO MUCH.
Gray was an independent, strong-willed, and skinny woman. Yeah, I have to mention the skinny part, since it is the title of this book and Gray being skinny plays a quite important role in this book. But when her father died, she lost interest in everything but food. She started to binge-eat. She ate like a pig and forgot all the diet she’s been on. I might feel sympathetic for what happened to her. I thought it is normal for someone to feel that way when her father dies.
When she’s finally back to her conscious state, she learned that her father may have an affair with another woman and she may have a half-sister. So she gathered information as much as she can about her possibly half-sister, Eden. She finally knew that Eden will attend a weight-loss camp at South. She couldn’t miss this opportunity. She wanted to tell Eden that they share the same father. So, she applied for a job in that camp and she was accepted. And that was the time I started to hate everything about her. I hate how she acted and reacted in that camp. As I read more and more, Gray really bugbed me to no end, especially when she started to flirt with her co-worker, a hot personal trainer, Bennet. I just want to put them both in hell.
Actually, this book has a lot of characters that are worth to mention. But I dislike them as well. I thought I would never find a loveable character here. They’re so… urrrghhh…Words fail me. But in the end of the story, there’s Mickey, Gray’s long-time boyfriend, who finally took action and came to rescue me from all the dullness. I really love the part where he visits Gray at camp. All my rage starts to disappear ever since. You’ll know why I feel that way if you read this book. Hehe. Hehe. And about what happened in Chapter 73, Gray really deserves it. *evil grin*
It’s hard to write a review about this book, I barely remember about what had happened in the beginning of this book because I already read it since 3 months ago and finally can finish it today. It’s just boring.

P.S: My fat-loss program has zero to do with this book. It’s just a coincidence that I started to worry my body during reading this book. Skinny doesn’t inspire me at all to be a skinny girl.
