Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes - Chris Crutcher Unfortunately I was only able to make it to 20% before I finally gave up. I will say I cared enough to want to know why Sarah was catatonic. But by 20% it still felt like the story wasn't going anywhere, so I was "that person" that looked at a spoiler review to find out what happens. I had hoped this might help spur me on. I even skipped ahead to a little over 50% and picked up from there, hoping I could get into it. Unfortunately this just wasn't something for me. Even knowing the outcome of the story and everything, I'm confused as to why there is such a heavy reference to swimming in the story. Honestly I'm sure this is a decent story, it just wasn't something for me.
