Skin and Bones
by Sherry Shahan
Expected publication date: March 1, 2014

It's nice to read an eating disorder book from a male POV for a change.

Skin and BonesTeaser from eARC loc 321:

"They only gave you eight peas?" Lard eyed Bone's plate. "I could mainline those."

"It's not that I'm paranoid," Bones said, mashing the peas into his chicken. "But I'm pretty sure the peas have been talking behind my back."

Book Blurb:

Sixteen-year-old Jack, nicknamed "Bones," won't eat. His roommate in the eating disorder ward has the opposite problem and proudly goes by the nickname "Lard." They become friends despite Bones's initial reluctance. When Bones meets Alice, a dangerously thin dancer who loves to break the rules, he lets his guard down even more. Soon Bones is so obsessed with Alice that he's willing to risk everything-even his recovery.



  1. Oh goodness. The names help picture what the characters look like.

  3. This sounds interesting! As a recovering anorexic, I bet I can easily relate to Bones! Here's my TT: http://booklovingmommy.blogspot.com/2014/02/teaser-tuesday-love-letters-to-dead-by.html

  4. Wow. It really is strange to see these diseases from a male viewpoint. Fascinating.


  5. Sounds like a good story that I'd enjoy (assuming Bones decides not to risk his recovery!)
    My Teaser is from CAPE MAYBE.

  6. This sounds like quite a book--a mix of humor and seriousness. Thanks for sharing!
