All of Me by Chris Baron - ADVISABLE

All of Me by Chris Baron, 312 pages. Feiwel and Friends (Macmillan), 2019. $17      

Content: G



Ari is dealing with a big move across the country, his parents crumbling marriage, new friends, and body image problems. He is overweight and is constantly reminded of that. His mom gives him a diet book and we see, through Ari's eyes, how Ari comes to terms with who is and how it is OK to be him.

The story is told in verse and is easy and fast to read. It beautifully describes how Ari deals with all the issues in his life. I liked that although the diet book and the diet helped Ari, it could not fix everything. I will book talk this book and recommend it to my students.
