Holding Up the Universe
About this deal
She does finally reach that point (when the crane is brought out) that her dad knows that help is needed. Their worlds collide in a horribly cruel high school game and an unlikely friendship is formed that leads to something even deeper. You’ll read teens who actually sound like teens and have their share of dickish moments and you’ll get to experience a relatable first crush rather than instalove and laugh out loud when Libby says things like: “I want to lean in and get a whiff of him and rest my head on his should or maybe make out with his neck” while slow dancing with a boy.

Libby hace varios años y siendo una niña sufrió una pérdida muy grande en su vida, lo que la llevó a comer para llenar el vacío de su corazón.
Neither of them are perfect, neither are as honest as they could be, and things aren't always wonderful. But this bravado hides a significant vulnerability: Jack has prosopagnosia, or the inability to recognize faces, even those of his family members or people he's known all his life.

Once after New years and once around my birthday because it just refreshes my mind and allows me to be vulnerable. It was compelling and didn't seem as offensive as the blurb had been, but the more I think about it, the more that doesn't seem to be enough of an excuse for the book as a whole.
