Blog #3 – Independent Reading – New Understandings

In the book Just Listen it describes what her sister looks like because she has an eating disorder. I thought that she used a lot of detail.
“She was all bones… Bones and knobs, every bump of her spine protruding and visible. Her hips poked out at angles, her knees were skinny and pale. It seemed impossible that she coould be so thin and Still be alive.. the sharpness of her shoulder blades as they rose out of her skin, looking like the wings of a dead baby bird I’d once found in our backyard, hairless and barely born already broken.”
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
