Sometimes trees can look healthy on the outside, but actually be dying inside. These trees fall unexpectedly during a storm.

For high school senior Parker Rabinowitz, anything less than success is a failure. A dropped extracurricular, a C on a calc quiz, a non-Jewish shiksa girlfriend--one misstep, and his meticulously constructed life splinters and collapses. The countdown to HYP (Harvard, Yale, Princeton) has begun, and he will stay focused.

That's why he has to keep it a secret. The pocketful of breath mints. The weird smell in the bathroom.

He can't tell his achievement-obsessed father. He can't tell his hired college consultant. And he certainly can't tell Julianne, the vision of hotness he so desperately wants to love.

Only Parker's little sister Danielle seems to notice that he's withering away. But the thunder of praise surrounding Parker and his accomplishments reduces her voice to broken poetry: I can't breathewhen my brother's aroundbecause I feel smothered, blank and faded

Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Parker Rabinowitz is the most popular guy at his high school, but he has a problem--he's bulimic. Parker's 14-year-old sister, Danielle, is the only one who notices he has a problem. Complex and realistic, this novel's ultimate message is one of hope.
