Butter by Erin Lange
Buy from Amazon
A truly original and heartfelt tale of one boy’s struggles with his weight and his peers who are relentless in their bullying.
This is the kind of book that will have you laughing out loud on one page and sobbing your heart out at the next.
I genuinely didn’t know whether Butter would go through with his plan – to eat himself to death live on a webcam. It’s written with such intensity and insight into how he feels about himself and they way he is treated that you can’t help but fall in love with him and desperately want him to realise that he is so much more than just a fat boy, his personality shines through and I just wanted to scream at all the people who were bullying him.
If you like stories that are heart-warming as well as heart-breaking then this is for you!
It’s perfect for fans of R.J.Palacio, Jennifer Niven and John Green.
