"Maggie Edkins Willis's Smaller Sister is a debut middle grade graphic novel about body image, confidence, and the everlasting bond of sisterhood. Lucy's always looked up to her big sister, Olivia, even though the two are polar opposites. But then, Lucy notices Olivia start to change. She doesn't want to play with Lucy anymore, she's unhappy with the way she looks, and she's refusing to eat her dinner. Finally, Lucy discovers that her sister is not just growing up: Olivia is struggling with an eating disorder. While her family is focused on her sister's recovery, Lucy is left alone to navigate school and friendships. And just like her big sister, she begins to shrink. But with time, work, and a dose of self-love, both sisters begin to heal and let themselves grow. Soon enough, Olivia and Lucy find their way back to each other--because sisters are the one friend you can never ditch."--Provided by publisher.… (mais)

Really strong story focusing on body dysmorphia and eating disorders, from the point of view of a younger sibling watching her older sister struggle. Particularly good at modeling how to tell if your friends are good for you or are cutting you down. Semi-autobiographical. ( )

This book belongs on shelves.

Because not only is anorexia a hidden (and not so hidden) demon for many, "Smaller Sister" hits on the fact that it can be genetic. That there is so much of a mental component to the disease. And that you can have many different relationships with food that are just as bad.

Some will have an issue that this book addresses things like missed periods. Guess what? It happens! Some will have issue with seeing underwear (no "lines" or boobs were shown). Guess what? Food disorders change your body.

Smaller Sister tackles friendship (much like Shannon Hale's books or even 'Growing Pangs" which I just read.) The reminder that if you have to change to have friends like you they aren't good friends is SO important, especially in this social media age! ( )

So, I give Smaller Sister a 4, at least. Eating disorders aren’t the main focus. Both sisters struggle when they are 12 ☹️because girls that age are horrible to each other. The family moves a couple of times so changing schools was hard. The message is to be yourself, like yourself, and you will find your people and your true self. ( )

Lucy is only twenty months younger than her sister Olivia, and while they fight sometimes, they usually make up; they even have a secret sister code, which they use to write notes back and forth. But when their mom and dad announce the girls are changing schools, and Olivia is pulled away from her close-knit group of friends, her eating disorder worsens quickly. Lucy does her best to navigate the new school, make new friends, and deal with life at home as she's dragged along to Olivia's many doctor's appointments for anorexia nervosa. When the family moves from Indianapolis to Massachusetts - an even bigger change - both Olivia and Lucy have a hard time with it. Ultimately, Olivia continues to work toward health, and Lucy develops new friendships and confidence at theater camp.

Quotes

Just when I was sure the old Olivia, the sister I had before the eating disorder and the new schools and the big move, was gone forever....She came back. (181)

"I was just looking at myself in the mirror."
"Mm-hmm. I think you were being HARD on yourself in the mirror." (Lucy and camp counselor Pamela, 286)

"Every person has a body, Luce. No matter what size you are, you can only get so much bigger or so much smaller. If you're constantly worried about making yourself thinner, then you're defined by something that is literally the opposite of growth." (Pamela, 289)

None of my friends from camp went to my school, but just the fact they existed was a reminder that there were people out there in the world that were a fit for me.... When I looked in the mirror, it was the same old me looking back. But I was just a little more okay with who I saw. (302-3) ( )
