Hello everyone and welcome to a new article,

| about the book |

The book is written by Jennifer Niven. She has also written the book 'All the bright places'. It's about Libby and Jack. Jack is the typical popular boy. He has many friends and a beautiful girlfriend. But he has a secret. He has prosopagnosia, also known as face blindness. Libby's mom passed away and due to that and her being bullied she began to eat a lot. She was known as the fattest teen of America and she got lifted out of her house. That was two years ago. Now she is ready to go to school.

It's a love story, but it's also about fatshaming and more types of insecurity.

| my opinion |

Whenever you look up 'holding up the universe' on weheartit, google or wherever you see all these quotes. Like you can see here :

These quotes and even more are all mentioned in the book. And I think that is such an amazing detail of this book. It's this positive vibe that this book gives me.

Not only is it a love story, it's also a book that makes you feel so much better about yourself. It teaches you to be happy with yourself and others without really trying too hard.

| critism |

I don't really have any critism to make on this book. When I looked up some reviews on the internet I saw a lot of critism, but I don't really agree with that. The book may not always be very realistic, but that doesn't bother me a lot.

If you'd ask me, it's a great book. But opinions differ per person, so you may think different about that.

| lessons |

This book teaches us a lot of lessons, it contains a great amount of meaningful quotes. I think we could all learn things from this book.

Before I read this, I thought popular people were so so sure about themselves. But when I read the parts of Jack telling his story.. He's actually really insecure, just like all the other popular people.

I hope you liked this review on 'Holding up the universe'. If you want to read this book because of this article then I hope it will inspire you as much as it inspired me and.. I hope to see you soon.
