Fat Boy was an uncomfortably accurate look at what it’s really like to be an overweight teenager.
This element hit me in particularly hard but the author pulled no punches when it came to the pain of isolation, inequality, bullying, broken families and dissolving friendships in high school either.
Credit to Herbach for having the guts to be so confronting but it didn’t exactly make for a pleasant read.
I would have like the plot to be a little stronger, a little more inspiring, a little more mythic.
Basically, I wish Fat Boy had been a little more fiction and a little less reality.
It was definitely well written and impactful – both great things and rare quantities in YA lit.
But I struggled with to get through the challenging subject matter and I’m struggling to recommend something I personally enjoyed so little.
