    Thanks to the author for providing kidlitexchange with a review copy of this bookI will preface this review with the fact that I have a close personal connection to the eating disorder topics addressed in this book and have read extensively on the topic at times in my life In addition I try to read all or as many as possible MG and YA titles that discuss this topic to ensure that the portrayal is 1 accurate and 2 sensitive and 3 non glamorizing I am so happy to say that this book hits all three of those in the best middle grade way possible and in addition addresses the life long nature of anorexia and purging through exercise rather than a tied with a bow uick fix Tallyoh Tally She is one of my new favorite middle grade heroines because of her body positive attitude and strong sense of self She bows to no one but also realizes her own vulnerabilities and is willing to admit when she is wrong and apologize to those who deserve it She EATS food and dresses to her heart's desire and rejects harmful body image and style stereotypes Her struggles with how to deal with Ava's issues are heartfelt and so so real Now for the trip storyline I JUST returned from a middle school bus trip to Washington DC with my daughter and her class so this story entered my reading life at the exact right time I connected with every part of the trip and it brought me right back there I loved how Dee addressed the rooming issues and social issues as these are the exact things I witnessed during my time as a chaperone For anyone who hasn't gone on this trip please know that this book perfectly nails it EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT YOU deserves a place in every middle school library and classroom and I have already pre ordered copies for my library and my daughter As a mom THIS is the book I want my daughter reading and Tally is the heroine I want her reading about Please also go and read Dee's post on Nerdy Book Club on her motivation for this story it is reuired readingAND if you want another MG on this topic with a slightly different but eually good twist please read THINGS THAT SURPRISE YOU by Jennifer Maschari

    Tally Martin is headed to Washington DC for a class trip Her biggest worries are 1 will her friends avoid being bullied and 2 will she and her friends have to room with their enemies Tally is dismayed to learn that yes she and her friends will be assigned roommates outside their comfort zones but she gradually comes to realize that her friends are able to stand on their own feet without need of help from her and that they can all make new unexpected friendshipsI loved these characters and how they grew from stretching themselves outside their comfort zones It's a great story

    Interest Level 5 8Have you ever had one of those friends who was always like a mother hen and always took care of everyone and everything? Are you one of those friends? That is Tally Martin She is always taking care of her best friends Caleb aka Spider and her new friend Sonnet When she finds out about the seventh grade class trip to Washington DC she is so excited that is until she finds out that the teacher over the trip is trying to promote seventh grade unity and is making them room with their enemies Tally is mortified that she is going to have to room with clonegirl Ava Sealy They have been mortal enemies for so long how can she be expected to spend three whole days with her? Tally Ava Sonnet Caleb and everyone else on the trip soon finds out that there is to their classmates than they every imaged Tally soon finds out that everyone is fighting a secret battle This book is filled with friendships fightings break ups make ups and even a possible crush comes to light However the biggest challenge Tally faces is when she finds out that her roommate may possibly have an eating disorder but she is being blackmailed into not telling anyone especially Ava's mom What will Tally do? Will she still have her best friends at the end of this trip or has her tight reigns finally broken? Will she do the right thing and get her enemy help despite risking an incredibly embarrassing picture coming out?

    An important book for tweens and teens Barbara Dee has a knack for tackling tough topics in MG with grace and even some humor This book includes authentic middle school voices and while Ava’s eating disorder is an issue it’s not the ONLY issue Main character Tally has always been comfortable in her skin until being forced to room with Ava on an overnight field trip to Washington DC makes her really look within herself Tally’s two best friends begin drifting toward other friends and she finds herself unsure of what to do about Ava Should she tell anyone about Ava’s eating habits? Why is she even worried about Ava? Do people ever really change? I can’t wait to include this book in my classroom library

    45 STARSSeventh grader and self professed outsider Tally should be excited about her class trip to DC but teachers assigned hotel roommates Now she’s stuck with Ava one of the clonegirls instead of her best friends and fellow bully victims Spider and Sonnet Over the four day trip Tally will be challenged about the meaning of friendship bullying family and whether to speak out when she suspects Ava of having an eating disorderBarbara Dee created a uniue character with a distinct voice in Tally Adopted at birth she doesn’t look like the rest of her family and is proud to be both adopted and large unlike the clonegirls who worry about their weight Very protective of her friends Tally doesn’t realize her controlling nature is alienating not just her enemies but also her friends She also doesn’t see how her judgments and name calling is every bit as bullying as the way others acted last year Tally expects the worst from Ava and the others and assumes nefarious motives when they treat her kindly She pushes others away with her words and attitudeTween girls will surely see themselves in multiple characters of EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT YOU Both Tally and Ava are complex with positive and negative attributes Though an outsider like Tally I identified and empathized with Ava suffering under the pressure of parental expectations and the mental illness of an eating disordertiny spoilerWhen the teacher told the class Ava was getting treatment for anorexia and would be okay I cringed Anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any mental illness at about 10% and the rate of relapse is extremely high In the Afterward Lee says she had had an eating disorder and should have known better than to have an adult promise everything would be fine There are ways to reassure kids and be honest at the same time Additionally weeks of inpatient eating disorder treatment is only available to the very wealthy even the best insurance companies usually only cover medical stability and the top tiered policies thirty days not the seven pound weight gain Ava hadend spoilerEVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT YOU is appropriate for and will be enjoyed by kids of all ages

    45 StarsWow Where do I even begin with this book?I’ve had a week to gather my thoughts and I still can’t formulate how good this book is It was justI don’t know something about itThe characters were great Tally was literally me at twelve I loved her so much Spider was another really relatable character I really liked him And AVA GOOD GOD AVA Yes there were many points where I didn’t like her but ultimately she was a really well written characterThe writing style was very similar to Beth Vrabel’s which is probably why I liked it so much I read CAMP DORK just after this one and holy cow I had to keep reminding myself that it was a different authorAll in all this was a really important book that I just loved with all my heart

    I received this book as an ARC so I don't want to give away too many plot details or spoilers but I do have to include details I will tag any possible spoilers at all so I don't ruin this for anyone This book is for ages 9 13 and it is very well suited for that age groupOk so our main character is Talia known as Tally throughout the story I loved Tally she was uirky and different and not afraid to stand out She's already much taller and bulkier than other girls s she dresses outlandishly as well However on the flip side of that we do see that sometimes she uses her differences as a shield She will take things too far to keep people away from her; that way if someone doesn't like her she can just blame it on how she looks and not who she is It's a defense to keep herself from being hurt and I liked how the author brought that aboutTally is going on a school trip with her two best friends; the three of them have always stuck together However on this school trip she and her best friends Spider and Sonnet are separated from each other Sonnet and Spider are fine with this; they seem to grasp the idea that they can make new friends even with old enemies People change right? Tally doesn't agree She can't understand why Sonnet and Spider are so forgiving She fights the entire process and it pushes her best friends away I did like that the book showed people CAN change you can forgive people and be friends; but I totally understood what Tally was going through as well She's protective to a fault; her friends kind of turn on her uickly Growing up all they wanted was for Tally to protect them it's what she's good at But the minute they get tired of it they completely turn on her They blame for doing WHAT THEY ASKED HER TO DO I was just as frustrated as Tally but this is a coming of age story and Tally grew through it Did she handle it well? No But she learns from it and it makes her a better person for it I liked the plot but I didn't like that Sonnet and Spider never fully apologize; both sides were wrong about something but Tally shouldn't take all the blameNow for some possible spoilery parts; WARNING possible spoilers ahead read at your own risk One big theme of the book is body image and disordered eating I think the way the author handled this subject and portrayed it in this story is eye opening Details in this part view spoiler The main character did not have an eating disorder but she did have a slight body image disorder Because she is so tall and bulky she always calls herself bigger and chubby which to me are negative words However she doesn't berate herself through food or to other people She eats whatever she wants and refers to herself as strong she refuses to talk about her body in a bad way with other girls However she does keep saying to herself that she has a huge butt that isn't attractive but she just doesn't care Obviously she does care to some extent but she won't starve herself or anything But she realizes she has a body image disorder through her frenemy friendenemy Ava Ava is her roommate who DOES have an eating disorder Ava works out all the time refuses to eat and tracks every single calorie that goes into her body Ava is forced to confess what's going to on to Tally and she hasn't developed anorexia because she feels fat It all started with the stress of her parents divorce; because she was always sick to her stomach and couldn't eat she slowly became obsessed with tracking everything she DID eat Then tracking her exercise then tracking her size because she had control This is a great portrayal because I've read a few fiction books about disordered eating and this is the first one I've read that showed how anorexia is about than weight or food A lot of times it comes from the need to be in control of something and that's exactly how Ava feels hide spoiler
