Losing It, by Erin Fry, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
Every once in a while you come across a book this good...
Losing It is the story of a young boy who shares his dad's passion for baseball and junk food. But when his father suffers a stroke, Bennett is forced to move in with his aunt and her family. Bennett resents his situation almost as much as he resents his meddling aunt and her health-nut-tendencies. But he soon comes to realize that his poor eating habits, paired with his aversion to exercise, will not help him to live a happy and productive life.
Genuine characters bring this story to life as young Bennett learns to find his inner strength along with the drive to succeed in ways he never dreamed were possible. You'll find yourself cheering for the "fat boy" as this unlikely hero conquers his weaknesses and fears and learns that sometimes it's OK to come in last.
Author, Erin Fry, has succeeded in creating a truly magnificent work of youth fiction. Losing It is a triumph and a must-read for young audiences!
