Binge- Tyler Oakley

Binge, by Tyler Oakley, is a very funny and good book that I just finished. It is about Tyler Oakley who is a famous Youtuber. The book is a collection of stories about his life and how he became a famous Youtuber.

One of the main stories he talked about was how he developed an eating disorder and how he was able to overcome it. He was overweight and during gym class, he would always be the last one to finish his running mile. He started realizing that he didn’t like how he looked or how he felt so he began virtually starving himself. Later, his parents figured out what was going on and were able to get him help.

One of the major themes of the book was about how he is gay and how he has coped with this during his life. His dad did not accept him for who he was, but he later was able to look past it. His mom did accept him for being gay, so he had a good support system.

I thought this book was really funny because of this interesting perspective of the modern world, so I would give it a 4.5 out of 5. I would recommend this book to anybody in 8th grade and up because of some of the content.
