Don't Call Me Kit Kat Read Online Free - Junior high is where things really start to happen. Cliques form and break apart. Couples are made and destroyed. And a reputation is solidified that you won’t ever be able to escape. Everything you do and say, and everyone you spend your time with, matters.
Katie Mills knows that. She gets it. That’s why she tried so hard to get in with the cool girls at school. And why she was so devastated when those efforts found her detained for shoplifting and laughed out of cheer squad tryouts.
But Katie has more to worry about than just fitting in. Her parents are divorced and always fighting. Her sister never has time for her. And her friends all seem to be drifting apart. Even worse? The boy she has a crush on is dating the mean girl at school.
Everything is a mess, and Katie doesn’t feel like she has control over any of it. Certainly not over her weight, which has always topped out at slightly pudgier than normal—at least, according to her mother.
So when she happens to catch one of the popular girls throwing up in the bathroom one day, it sparks an idea. A match that quickly engulfs her life in flames.
Is there any going back once she gets started down this path?
And would she even want to if she could?

And I wanted to shout at Katie and shake her and hug her and tell her everything will be well... it's such a gut churning story, it really made me feel for her, relate to her, un...

Dang. I had to stop and read this book in several sittings because I needed to get myself together. The story within is heartbreaking and beautiful.
It's about learning to let go, forgive oneself, and heal. It's also about friendships—both good and bad; communication—or the lack, thereof; and the...

An important book which really shows what living with an eating disorder is like. I really did feel for Katie it felt very true to reality which made it even sadder but glad it was true to life. Hopefully will raise awareness.

Farnham moved me in several ways, first with her ability to depict a clear picture of the horrors and dangers of an eating disorder, secondly to cover other social issues plaguing teens and thirdly to masterfully come across as a troubled teen loud and clear, her language expressed that of a teen...

I was mesmerised by this story from the first page. Told in the first person, KJ Farnham perfectly captures teen angst. Katie, nicknamed Kit-Kat (a name she hates but one she is stuck with) is a character who I felt a strong connection to with her open vulnerability, her desperate need to belong...

I absolutely adored this novel. Normally it takes me at least a couple of weeks to read a book, so the fact that I read this in less than two days says it all really! From the first couple of chapters I was hooked, wanting to know how things were going to turn out for Katie - I just couldn't put...
