    Parts were good

    I am a bit conflicted about this book. I really liked how Greer's friends, Jessa and Maggie were there for her all the time and helped Greer to feel better about herself. I hope every high schooler can have such steadfast friends to help them through the tough teen years. I liked that part of the story, with Greer trying out for volleyball which also helped her change her attitude to her body. What I did not like was Greer's constant preoccupation with "Maude and Mavis". Yes, she is insecure about have larger breasts than some of the other teens and that did make life a bit harder in regards to finding clothes and bras to fit, but reading page after page and chapter after chapter about it, I got a little annoyed. I much preferred the volleyball sections and even the Jackson parts (he is sweet). The ending is good though and I like how Greer was finally able to come to terms with her whole self (at least for the moment) and find her happily now.

    Great Teen Book!

    This book reminds me so much of when I was a teen and had so many insecurities about my body. I did not have the same problem that Greer had with "Maude and Mavis" (I thought this was so funny that she named them!) but I was definitely not comfortable in my own skin. I enjoyed following Greer on her journey through her sophomore year in learning to be okay with what she had. Luckily she had some amazing friends, Jessa from the volleyball team, and Maggie, a fighter against the establishment, that were always there for her, to listen and encourage Greer. I think these were the strongest parts of the book, though Jackson was cute and I liked the whole Volleyballerina thing that he did with Greer. This was a good book and a good read for people that might be feeling insecure about themselves.

    Refreshing Take on Body Image Issues

    My Eyes Are Up Here is a refreshing take on body image issues and the impact they have on a girl’s self-esteem. Fifteen-year-old Greer Walsh has always felt defined and limited by her large breasts. She hides behind oversized sweatshirts and does everything she can to avoid physical contact and attention. But between joining the volleyball team and finding a new community there, and befriending Jackson Oates, the new guy in school, Greer starts to come to terms with her sense of self and starts to see herself as more than just the size of her chest. This is really a story about friendship and a girl learning to love herself for all her qualities. There is a bit of a love story, but I wouldn’t consider it to be the main plot of the story. I adored this story. It was so light and witty, yet incredibly powerful. I personally connected with this story, but for me, it was ballet instead of volleyball. I highly recommend My Eyes Are Up Here! It was such an endearing story but was overall very light. I wouldn’t consider it highly mature YA and would be appropriate for younger YA readers, however, I don’t feel as though you have to be a younger reader to enjoy it, given that I’m an adult and I loved it!
