Key Features


Sarah loves basketball more than anything. Crushing it on the court makes her feel like she matters. And it's the only thing that
helps her ignore how much it hurts when her mom forgets to feed her.
But lately Sarah can't even play basketball right. She's slower now and missing shots she should be able to make. Her body
doesn't feel like it's her own anymore. She's worried that changing herself back to how she used to be is the only way she can
take control over what's happening.
When Sarah's crush asks her to be partners in a cooking competition, she feels pulled in a million directions. She'll have to dig
deep to stand up for what she needs at home, be honest with her best friends, and accept that she doesn't need to change to feel
good about herself.
Booklist described Gerber's novels in starred reviews as both ""highly empathetic"" and ""truly inspiring."" Taking Up Space promises
to be a realistic and compelling story about struggling with body image and learning that true self-esteem comes from within.
