At 13, Katie is fed up with her embarrassing life. She wants nothing more than to be invisible. Until Anika who hangs out with the popular OH girls takes her under her wing… to show her how to shoplift. Mortification holds nothing to the embarrassment of letting Anika down, but when everything that can go wrong does, Anika points the finger to her. Katie’s world crumbles, and that’s how she turns to binging and purging. She’s finally finds a way to cleanse herself of the eternal embarrassment and stress her middle school causes, but hiding her new habit proves too hard. Especially when her family says crazy stuff like she’s getting thin, and she has to stop. Because that’s the biggest problem of all. She can’t.

 

 

Review by Adan Ramie

3 Stars

At first, I was a little hesitant to read this book. I’m not a huge fan of Young Adult stories, because I don’t often find them relatable. But this one pulled me in hard – and fast.

I remember being just like Katie at thirteen. I was the pudgy one who suddenly found herself without a lot of friends when everyone started worrying more about looks and popularity than who’s a great runner or catcher.

Being ostracized can lead to a lot of problems. For Katie, it leads her down the path of a dangerous, easily-hidden eating disorder that will change her life forever.

Don’t Call Me Kit Kat by K.J. Farnham gets three out of five stars for being an interesting, moving read that, while it was a little long and repetitious in parts, is a solid story I recommend to anyone who wants to know more about eating disorders.
