Can't Wait Wednesday (16)

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa of Wishful Endings. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, which was created by Jill Breaking the Spine.

To Be Honest by Maggie Ann Martin

Release date: August 21st, 2018
Amazon / Book Depository / Indiebound

Summary (from goodreads): Savannah is dreading being home alone with her overbearing mother after her sister goes off to college. But if she can just get through senior year, she'll be able to escape to college, too. What she doesn't count on is that her mother's obsession with weight has only grown deeper since her appearance on an extreme weight-loss show, and now Savvy's mom is pressuring her even harder to be constantly mindful of what she eats.

Between her mom's diet-helicoptering, missing her sister, and worrying about her collegiate future, Savvy has enough to worry about. And then she meets George, the cute new kid at school who has insecurities of his own. As Savvy and George grow closer, they help each other discover how to live in the moment and enjoy the here and now before it disappears.

Why I'm excited: I'm always here for fat representation in books, and I am interested in more books that talk about how toxic diet culture is. It's much needed, especially in YA.

Also, I get a snicker out of the author's name being so close to Ann M. Martin, as I'm a child at heart. No one else cares, but it amuses me.

Peace and cookies,
Laina
