Find of my reviews at Pop Goes The Reader “I think about the things I spent my whole life avoiding the time I spent hiding the moments when I tried to make myself small and invisible If only I’d known that this was on the other side of my fear that all I had to do was let people see me”Sixteen year old Jolie Peterson has spent her entire life attempting to hide in plain sight Born with mandibular prognathism an underbite Jolie has always felt insecure about how she looks especially when compared to her beautiful sister Abbi and does everything possible to draw attention away from her painful and often difficult condition Jolie has always dreamed of how her life would be different after the surgery intended to correct her underbite a surgery which is scheduled for her seventeenth birthday and creates a list of things she would most like to accomplish post procedure But when Jolie begins to grow concerned about dying during the operation a fear likely worsened by her family’s obsession with ‘Worst Case Scenario TV’ Jolie decides to make a second list comprised of the things she feels she absolutely must do before her surgery just in case Along with the help of her friends Evelyn and Derek Jolie creates the “Things Jolie Needs To Do Before She Bites It Which Is Super Unlikely But Still It Could Happen” list complete with goals like “Read Jane Eyre” “Eat all the appetizers at Applebee’s” and “Kiss Noah Reed” her crush In the process Jolie will learn that to make the most of today sometimes you have to live like there’s no tomorrow Things Jolie Needs To Do Before She Bites It is a uiet understated story that nonetheless speaks volumes about self esteem body image beauty standards feminism and the rewards of stepping outside of one’s comfort zoneThe possibility of dying during her operation however remote finally gives Jolie the incentive she needs to be proactive about many of the things she has always longed to do but was always too scared to pursue Despite her newfound sense of determination however Jolie’s objective to complete her pre surgery goals is anything but easy or straightforward Because so much of her self esteem or lack thereof is connected to how she feels about her physical appearance Jolie is incredibly insecure and finds it difficult to feel worthy of being heard celebrated and even loved It is this journey of self acceptance that lies of the heart of this novel a journey which I have no doubt readers of all ages will find familiar and deeply relatable Jolie also struggles with the implications of her forthcoming surgery and whether moving forward with it is the right choice for her While there are practical medical reasons why the surgery is important as it’s meant to prevent further difficultly as she grows older including jaw pain speech difficulty and headaches because the surgery will also make her conventionally attractive Jolie begins to worry that this coupled with her excitement and anticipation about being ‘fixed’ makes her less of a feminist Much of the novel is spent interrogating traditional beauty standards and what it truly means to be beautiful ultimately resulting in the empowering conclusion that beauty is entirely subjective and not solely reliant on physical attributesIn addition to its positive and empowering message Things Jolie Needs To Do Before She Bites It is also interspersed with a number of charming ancillary details including Derek’s podcast “Deep Dive” which offers an in depth examination of obscure subject matter Derek and Jolie’s shared love of terrible films and “To The Moon and Back” the school play in which Jolie eventually stars in order to get closer to her crush Noah and which is notable both for its inclusion of space travel and a perplexing choir of singing pigs As an aside I would pay an alarming amount of money to see this play performed in full Jolie has a healthy positive relationship with her parents and is able to communicate openly and honestly with them about her fears and insecurities and her friendship with Evelyn and Derek is both supportive and kindKerry Winfrey’s 2015 young adult debut Love and Other Alien Experiences about an housebound teen who is forced to confront her anxiety and agoraphobia when she is unexpectedly nominated for homecoming ueen is a book that’s very dear to my heart and one I consider woefully under appreciated so I was eager to read the author’s 2018 sopho novel Things Jolie Needs to Do Before She Bites It As was the case with Winfrey’s debut Jolie’s story is earnest sweet endlessly enchanting and one I won’t hesitate to recommend to absolutely everyone I know A novel filled with a generous helping of heart humour and hope Things Jolie Needs To Do Before She Bites It is both a delightful romantic comedy and a touching story of a girl learning to love herself unreservedly
