Despite her massive size, Meghan Ball is the most invisible person at Valley Regional High. People say things in front of her as if she doesn?t exist. And most of the time, she feels like she doesn?t? until Meghan sees Aimee Zorn. Aimee is as skinny as Meghan is large, and as outwardly angry as Meghan is inwardly sad. Meghan instantly recognizes a kindred spirit in Aimee, another person using her body to say what she cannot. Alone, they are powerless, but together, Meghan and Aimee join forces to get sweet revenge against the one girl in school who hurt them both.
An unforgettable debut novel about the way we look at others, and the way we see ourselves.
Meghan Ball is both the most visible and the most invisible person in school. Her massive size is impossible to ignore, yet people freely spill their secrets in front of her, perhaps because they think she isn?t listening. But she is. Now her attention has turned to a new girl: Aimee Zorn, with her stick-figure body and defiant attitude. Meghan is determined to befriend Aimee, and when she ultimately succeeds, the two join forces to take down their shared enemy.
This provocative story explores the ways in which girls use food and their bodies to say what they cannot: I?m lonely.
