In the vein of Laurie Halse Anderson's Wintergirls, this emotionally haunting and beautifully written young adult debut delves into the devastating impact of trauma and loss.
Seventeen-year-old Stevie is trapped. In her life. In her body. And now in an eating-disorder treatment center on the dusty outskirts of the New Mexico desert. Life in the center is regimented and intrusive, a nightmare come true. Nurses and therapists watch Stevie at meal time, accompany her to the bathroom, and challenge her to eat the foods she's worked so hard to avoid. Her dad has signed her up for sixty days of treatment. But what no one knows is that Stevie doesn't plan to stay that long. There are only twenty-seven days until the anniversary of her brother Josh's death—the death she caused. And if Stevie gets her way, there are only twenty-seven days until she, too, will end her life.
Paperweight follows Stevie's journey as she struggles not only with this life-threatening eating disorder, but with the question of whether she can ever find absolution for the mistakes of her past…and whether she truly deserves to.

This is the story that follows the life of Stephanie Deslisle, Stevie, a teenager who has suffered dramatical changes in her life that had affect her emotional state leading to depression and a low self-esteem creating in her an eating disorder that puts her life at risk. But that is exactly what she want to accomplish, finish her life using her body as a weapon to hurt herself and the people around her.
Is a real and cruel story that show us an emotional side of why this girl had decided to commit suicide. I had never read something like this before and I’m surprised that this book didn’t get more attention that deserves.
My rating is 5/5
