Share your comments on: Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes

Review for :

Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes
Eric Calhoune and Sarah Byrnes have been friends for most of their lives, up to the time in high school when this novel starts. The strong bond that exists between the two of them is based on appearance. He was given the nickname of Moby because of his weight, and Sarah's hands and face were badly burned when she was three years old. When Eric begins to lose weight while on the high school swimming team he vows to "stay fat for Sarah Byrnes." As they delve beneath the surface of their bond, they discover that the answer may be more than they can handle. Crutcher effectively shows that a human relationship can have just as strong a connection as any man-made chain.
