I went into this title in the dark. I was drawn to the cover, which was lovely, as well as the title. I didn't realize it was a fictional account of two sisters (Ruby and Pearl) struggling in their lives, but not realizing what the other might be experiencing. Ruby is a runner, has a great job, and seemingly a life one could envy. Pearl weighs over 500 pounds, and their mother is in prison for manslaughter. When Pearl decides to have weight loss surgery, Ruby does come to help, but we learn there are deep-seated issues with her as well. Pearl's journey was so well written, and the author clearly drew from some of her sister's real-life experiences. I was so impressed with the manner in which the author gave us characters to care about, twists in the story we think we know, as well as the journey through it all. I loved this book, and I highly recommend it. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for a digital ARC in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
