Book Summary: 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?
