Publisher's Summary

Do you ever get hungry? Too hungry to eat? Holly's older sister, Giselle, is self-destructing. Haunted by her love-deprived relationship with her late father, this once strong role model and medical student, is gripped by anorexia. Holly, a track star, struggles to keep her own life in balance while coping with the mental and physical deterioration of her beloved sister. Together, they can feel themselves slipping and are holding on for dear life.

This honest look at the special bond between sisters is told from the perspective of both girls, as they alternate narrating each chapter. Gritty and often wryly funny, Skinny explores family relationships, love, pain, and the hunger for acceptance that drives all of us.

ok story with a disappointing ending

the 2 sides of the story approach is a good idea but I didn't feel it worked in this audio book.
The story is interesting but lacked a real hook to make me care about either of the main characters. The narrator was ok but just. Good to pass some time, not riveting by any stretch of the imagination.
