Holding Up the Universe

Lugar a sentimentos muito diferentes Uma história de superação e de um amor verdadeiro e invulgar ue nos devolve a esperança no mundo em nós e no outro. 4 stars Holding Up the Universe was an interesting and moving read with complex characters and a uniue storyline I listened the the audio version of this book and once I hit play I didn t want to stop When I read All the Bright Places earlier this year I had the same feeling of being hooked I m happy to report the author was able to pull this off not once but twice Our story centers around Libby Strout and Jack Masselin Libby is formally America s Fattest Teen She s spent a lot of her young adult life getting healthy and she is nowhere near thin but she s happy with herself She decides to take the plunge stop homeschooling and go to high school Libby is a fantastic character I loved that she s just herself She has a great relationship with her dad and meets some good friends throughout this journey for her She also meets Jack Masselin in a very unconventional way Jack s got it good in high school or so everything thinks He s popular has a pretty girlfriend and a lot of friends He s funny charming and cool But he struggles every single moment of every single day See Jack has this secret He can t recognize faces I can t even imagine how that would feel To wake up each morning look at my husband and not recognize his face That s how it is for Jack He knows his brother s hair style and he can tell his other brother by his ears but the system is not flawless Libby is the only one who knows about this and is able to help him He doesn t always deserve her help but that s not the point It s just the way Libby is I love her for it Jack and Libby s relationship is complicated at first The way they meet the reason they re spending so much time together Their friendship grew and developed as the story progressed I loved them both and I loved that they had each others backs Jack won me over early on just knowing he was rooting for Libby from the very start warmed my heart Even though there were some hard to read moments the story overall was a positive one I felt happy when I finished I give this one 4 stars Because sometimes when you meet someone it changes the world theirs and yours

Ck é o típico rapaz popular do liceu no entanto tem prosopagnosia e não consegue reconhecer caras uando o destino os une a solidão ue cada um sente dá. You know I don t care what anyone thinks I just loved the hell out of this book I happy cried so many times in this book And there will probably be some SPOILERS I don t know my feels right now are out of control This review is going to be all over the place because I m crazy and that s just the way it is I love Libby so much In this book she has so much courage Even when she was low and things hurt her she had courage like no one I know Those hateful horrible kids said some of the most horrible things to her I just can t fathom My name is Libby Strout You ve probably heard of me You ve probably watched the video of me being rescued from my own house At last count 6345981 people have watched it so there s a good chance you re one of them Three years ago I was American s Fattest Teen I weighed 653 pounds at my heaviest which means I was approximately 500 pounds overweight I haven t always been fat The short version of the story is that my mom died and I got fat but somehow I m still here This is no way my father s fault Two months after I was rescued we moved to a different neighborhood on the other side of town These days I can leave the house on my own I ve lost 302 pounds The size of two entire people I have around 190 left to go and I m fine with that I like who I am For one thing I can run now And ride in the car And buy clothes at the mall instead of special ordering them And I can twirl Aside from no longer being afraid of organ failure that may be the best thing about now versus then Tomorrow is my first day of school since fifth grade My new title will be high school junior which let s face it sounds a lot better than America s Fattest Teen But it s hard to be anything but TERRIFIED OUT OF MY SKULL I wait for the panic attack to come And of course we all know when she gets to school the jerkholes start bullying her I hate them so much I could just scream But Libby is a force of nature She don t take too much shite from anyone She ignores it or in case of boys she just knocks them on their arse She my hero This is the way she meets the other main character Jack I love him too I will get to him in a minute He s going to do something to Libby that is a horrible prank for the big girls He puts a note in her bag before talking about it and apologizing but he gets what he deserves I m lying on the cafeteria floor and the girl is standing over me My jaw feels knocked loose it s over somewhere in Ohio I give it a rub to make sure it s still attached and my hand comes away covered in blood I say What the hell My words are garbled Jesus I think she broke my voice box Why did you punch me WHY DID YOU GRAB MEMy eyes go to her backpack to the letter sticking out of the pocket I just managed to shove it into I want to say You ll understand later but I can t speak because I m wiping the blood from my mouth Jack is popular dude at the school but he has a big problem He has prosopagnosia PROSOPAGNOSIA 1 An inability to recognize the faces of familiar people typically as a result of damage to the brain 2 when everyone is a stranger Jack has figured this out for himself by research He has never told his family or friends He gets away with it by other means You can read the book and find out When Libby was little she lived across the street from three boys and I loved it because she called them Sam Dean and Cas She loved the show Supernatural too They were her only friends well friends in her head Until that day she was taken from her home by crane and moved away The story goes back and forth to things that happened in the past to the present And it wasn t confusing at all I m surprised because I get confused easy It turns out that Libby and Jack are pushed together by being in a group after school for being bad Then they start to get to know each other and it s so fun and it s so wonderful They help each other And yeah some sad stuff happens but it all works out in the end And let me tell you there is one part where Libby stands up to the whole school in such a way that I cried my eyes out I wish I could add the excerpt like the other ones but it s one you should read for yourself I just love her Did I say that already This book makes me feel sad mad and good Libby makes me feel good for so many reasons and that s enough for me I will read this many times and get some inspiration from Libby I wish I had a friend like her The saddest part is I almost didn t read this book because of so many negative reviews It does have a lot of good reviews but now I don t care what people think I read what I want and I m glad I found a gem that works for ME I got this print book through the BloggingForBooks ProgramMY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading List
