Ibi Kaslik is not only a novelist, but be is also a freelance writer. Kaslik has written two books: Skinny and The Angels Riot.

Ibi Kaslik was born August 20, in Toronto, Ontario. Plotline The novel Skinny is about two sisters named Giselle and Holly. Giselle is twenty-two years old and recovering from anorexia. She is the intelligent one of the two sisters, and was attending medical school until the anorexia came. She starts to turn her life back to the way it was before her illness, by volunteering at the hospital.

She also starts having a close relationship with an old friend. Holly is a fourteen year old track star that had a close relationship with her dad before he passed away. She is visited by the ghost of their dead father. Most of the novel takes place at the the school Giselle was attending, or the mental hospital she was checked into. The atmosphere of the book is sorrowful. I think that Giselle can be selfish because of the way she thinks that she should be treated like royalty at home just because of her eating disorder.

She is also very smart. Giselle was a top medical student, and even when she was younger she would get the neighbor kids to bring her dead animals so that she could dissect them and do her own experiments with them. My Review I am very much enjoying Skinny so far. It is an excellent book, but it can be a little confusing at times. Skinny is not what I expected it to be On a scale of one to ten, ten being best, I give it an eight. Posted by.

"Skinny"By Ibi Kaslik?

I could not help but to immediately feel sorry for the family in the novel Skinny by Ibi Kaslik. She takes on a huge role writing this depressing novel as she goes deep into the endeavors of demonstrating many issues facing youth and into two young girls struggling minds. I am close to many people facing problems exactly like the ones that were portrayed in Skinny. This is hands down one of my favorite novels because there was never a dull moment and the practicality of it all was captivating.
