It's hard enough for Eve to adjust to a new high school without the extra weight she's gained over the summer. Her best friend is ashamed to hang out with her, and she's become the focus of a schoolmate's cruelty. Determined not to be "that pathetic fat girl" at school, Eve struggles with a diet and forces herself to join a mentoring program. The diet only makes her food obsessed, and she feels she is failing as a mentor. How can a lonely fat girl gain the confidence she needs to succeed?

Read from the Book

"I saw Eve on the street this summer," says Zoe. "She's gotten so fat. She looks like a blob."
   I feel like a herd of horses are stomping through my chest. I want to turn and run, but my feet are glued to the pavement.
