More Than a Number Signed Paperback
My sophomore year changed everything.
I dropped forty pounds after a stint in fat camp. Prior to losing weight, most of my time was spent comparing myself to my twin sister and trying to hide my cankles.
But losing weight made all things seem possible.
Now I'm popular, vying for the hottest guy in school, and competing for a prom queen nomination. Finally, I'm getting noticed, and it's all because I dropped the pounds.
Everything I ever wanted is right at my fingertips.
If only I could lose more weight, and I'd be perfect.
But my friend Jake tells me I want all the wrong things. He thinks I'm already perfect.
Sometimes you can't see what's right in front of you. Like how I'm spiraling in a deadly game of self-acceptance. Or how, despite being my best friend's brother, Jake has always been the one to catch me when I fall.
Can he catch me again? Or am I too far gone?
