Skinny by Donna Cooner – Novel Summary
Her name is Ever Davies and she weights 302 pounds. She doesn’t have any friends, she gets bullied, she has 2 stepsisters. She has a bestfriend calls Rat (real name Ted). Her mother died of cancer and she now lives with her stepsister, stepmother and father. And there’s a voice in her head that belongs to skinny.
After the incident where she broke the chair she was seated, she decided to undergo surgery. Rat has been with her, before, during and after the surgery. After the surgery she became friends with Kirsten, Whitney (who volunteered to be her stylist) and other popular kids in school. During the ball, she thought she’s finally living her dream. Jackson, her long time crush, finally asked her out. She sort of dated Jackson when she wasn’t that fat back then. But then she realized something – Rat went with Briella, her stepsister, and she hated the sight of them. When she was on her way home (because she got sad that she’s losing Rat, she slightly changed after surgery), she saw Jackson and Gigi kissing. Jackson admitted that Whitney asked him to ask her out.
After that, she became friends with Briella and then discovered that Rat has always been inlove with her. In the end, she was cast as her dream role, Cinderella. She can really sing and by that time, she only weights around 100+ pounds.
