Holding Up the Universe

Standard

holdinguptheuniverse.jpgLibby was crowned America’s Fattest Teen. She even had to be ‘cut out’ of her own home. But what people don’t know is the reason for her obsession with food. That was roughly two years ago, now she is ready to come back, start high school and a major do over.

Jack is the man. Well, at least that’s what he wants everyone to think. Jack can’t remember faces. He can remember a person, just not how they look like. Imagine a room full of strangers, but those strangers being your loved ones, people you’ve known your entire life, but having to memorize their faces again, and again, every time they turn away.

When Libby and Jack cross paths in an altercation, they realize that in order to feel less alone, you have to have to be willing to share your secrets.

My Overall Rating:
I give this book a 9 ‘* / 10’*
This book was/is amazing. I enjoyed how their characters and personalities changed and grew throughout the plot.

My Opinion:
There are a few things that I would change. Like maybe let her figure out who sent those letters or let her fulfill her dream. But I maybe the story would then not feel so damn amazing to read. I read this book in under 8 hours. And I started in the checkout line of the Hugendubel (german bookstore chain) that I bought it in. I have fallen in love with Jennifer Niven ever since I read All the Bright Places. I just love how she writes. This book makes me hyper at 2am in the morning, a time that I’m usually dead tired at. Every time I read one of her books, she changes the way I look at the world and more specifically that people inhabiting it. This book is a must read, if you like The Fault in Our Stars and All the Bright Places, or are simply a breathing, living human being that craves a love story.
