I’m currently reading Slim to None, and I have some thoughts on this book, and I want to share them with you. First, I have to say that all cover editions are all darn cute. We meet Abbie, who is a fat main character and not sorry about it, which is refreshing to see. She works as a food critic for her local newspaper.
Still, everything started to change when her disguise was discovered, and her boss changed her job to a food columnist since according to her weight can’t be disguised. Which in my opinion he’s body-shaming her which shouldn’t be allowed in today’s society. One thing that my heart Abbie’s friendship with a homeless man named George.
Each chapter begins with a food-related quote which I think is a nice touch plus at the end of each chapter, you get a yummy recipe you can try. It’s interesting to see that as soon as someone tries to put her down, Abbie begins to put herself down. Even in situations where people who love her like her husband tries to lift her spirits up.
We see Abbie at her lowest her husband started to stay away from her she got in an accident which in a way it helped her to get her inner strength and confidence back. To fight to get her job back and get her life together health and social wise. We see another side of Abbie when she stops eating to cover her feeling. I gave this book a three out of five stars.
