5 Star Review 💗 Fighting Weight by Gillian Jones

Fighting Weight-Gillian Jones

Reviewed by Jacqui

This book is definitely going to be on my Top 10 list. This powerful book deals with a very sensitive subject of bulimia. It’s unfortunately a “bully” that holds so many captive. Gillian Jones dealt with the subject in an amazing way. You get an insight of what someone who suffers from bulimia inner monologue looks like. It also goes into another disorder, body dysmorphia. As someone who has dealt with this, I could relate to what Alina was feeling. Dealing with your own inner demons is a daily struggle for some.

The story of Alina and Slater was so well written it kept me up late reading. I wanted to cry with the characters and high five Slater for being in Alina’s corner throughout the story. It’s a story that shows that true love can overcome the challenges presented. Nobody is perfect but finding that one person who can help get you through and battle with you is out there. Accept the help no matter how long it takes. Gillian Jones, what an amazing story you have created that can touch so many in one way or another. We all have our demons and you found a sensitive way to approach them while stealing our hearts. Thank you.

Synopsis

We all have that voice inside our heads.

The one that speaks to us incessantly. That voice we trust to make the right decisions, to keep us on a positive path, even when others try to bring us down.

But what happens when that voice changes?
When it’s no longer a voice of reason, a voice of comfort giving us a pep talk when we need them?

What happens when that inner voice turns into a bully?

You’re fat.
Don’t you dare eat that.
You’ll never be as pretty as her.
You’ll never be as good as them.
You’re lazy. You’re stupid.
You are disgusting.
You. Are. Nothing.

What happens when that inner voice makes your body take its side?
Binge.
Purge.
Binge
Purge.

And what happens when the bully starts to win?

If your name is Alina Cassidy, then you fight like hell.

Warning: May contain subject matter that some readers may find sensitive. But I promise a traditional HEA.
