Skinny by Donna Cooner
You know that voice? The one that tells you you’ll never get that part in the play, or get a spot on the team, or that boyfriend you want? Well, meet Skinny. Skinny is “that voice” for Ever. Ever is overweight and she is constantly reminded of that fact by the voice she has named Skinny. The voice that tells her no one likes her because of her weight and no one ever will. The question is, is Skinny right?
