Named a Finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

A romantic love triangle that will appeal to fans of To All the Boys I've Loved Before--this compelling story explores insecurity and the power of words to hurt and to heal.

When tall, gorgeous Brody asks Olivia to the prom, she's ecstatic--until he suggests that she use the two months before the dance to lose some weight.

But how thin is thin enough?

Body's comment sends Olivia on a spiral of dangerously rapid weight loss that borders on anorexia. As her pounds vanish, her friendship deepens with Ross, the new prep cook at the diner where she works. Despite his mysterious limp, he doesn't suffer crippling low self-esteem issues like she does; she can't even look at herself in the mirror anymore. The only time she doesn't feel ugly or fat is when she goes riding dirt bikes and cave-hunting with Ross. But with Brody, instead of finding romance and true love, she feels like a terrified rabbit he's going to devour.

She's almost thin enough to be beautiful for the prom when the unthinkable happens.
