A fight against the food industry turns deadly.

Soon the boy, the nurse, and their loved ones take center stage in a delusional man’s drama.
I really enjoy a book that it’s written with a reason behind it and this one definitely fits that description. What happens when an obese teenager decides to sue the food industry for making him obese? This awesome story.
Jeremy Barton lives with his mother and grandfather. At 15 years old he’s five foot nine and 310 pounds and obese. He has all the physical and mental problems to go along with being obese at a young age. He’s harassed at school and even at home by his grandfather who came up with the nick name Eating Bull. When he goes to a public health Weight Loss Clinic his nurse Sue approaches him with the plan of suing the fast food industry for making him obese.
Serial killer in the making “Darwin” hears “The Voice” telling him to kill a obese people. “The Voice” picks out the people to kill and he obeys and each killing becomes easier. When “The Voice” tells “Darwin” that Jeremy is the next target after seeing the lawsuit on the news things start to get really interesting.
Will Jeremy survive? Who is “Darwin” and why is he killing obese people?
This book takes a realistic look at the causes and problems of obesity in America. I really enjoyed it and throwing in a serial killer and the suspense just put it over the top. Wish I could give it more than 5 it definitely deserves it.
