Relax. This one is a keeper. It takes a while to get over the fact that overweight Eric might ever get off his pity pony and almost anorexic Corey can climb out of his cynical cycle, both thrown together because of their issues with food, and weight. As is her modus operandus, Stevens takes her time to flesh out the personalities of her MCs, throws in a lot of conversations, develops good supporting characters, and throws us a bone or two in plot twists along the way.
And, along the way I found that Eric and Corey were real people, and their issues real, and their solutions challenging and real as well. That they slowly grow from classmates to dinner mates to bedmates is paced right, even though there are deep questions along the way in both of their minds--to say nothing of their stomachs.
There's a lot going on here, and it's laconically exciting rather than feverishly overdone. This is a winner, and I upped it from 4 1/2 to 5 stars because you really should read it.
One of the things that I have always loved about Felice's characters is that they are real. The problems they face may not always be noticeable. Some, like the ones faced by Eric and Corey are a result of their physical appearance and how they view themselves because of it, a view reinforced by the outside world.
I loved this book. This is one of those books that will stay with you for a long time after finishing it.
The feeling of invisibility, interspersed with those comments about appearance that hurt so much. All of it, just so much. Wanting to hide away from the world, blend into the background to avoid being hurt. Eric's character was one I felt for deeply with all the pain and heartache he had to contend with, and then when Corey comes along, larger than life and just what Eric needs, my heart broke for him, too.
These two being opposites also made so much sense.
Emotional story that tugged at the heartstrings.
