A girl tumbles into a downward spiral when a romantic encounter turns violent in this heartwrenching novel from the author of Cracked.
Dell is relentlessly teased about her weight and devastated when a tender moment with her long-time crush turns violent. Distraught and isolated after the attack, Dell’s depression—and life—spins out of control.
Finding that food no longer eases her distress, she turns to her mother’s prescription pain pills. But what starts as a quick fix rapidly escalates. Dell is overwhelmed by the loneliness, the self-hatred, the heartbreak, the shame, and the name-calling. How far will she go to make it all stop?
