Publisher Comments:

Beauty pageant winner, homecoming queen--Lara has the world at her feet.  Until she gets fat.

Despite a strict diet and workout schedule, Lara is soon a nameless, faceless, 200-pound-plus teenage blimp.  She's desperate to get her to-die-for body back--and to find an explanation for her rapid weight gain.

When she's diagnosed with a mysterious metabolic disorder that has no known cure, Lara fears she'll spend the rest of her life trapped in a fat suit.  Who will stand by her?  Her image-conscious family?  Her shallow friends?  Her handsome boyfriend?  Or will she be left alone in the land of the fat girls?

Synopsis:

THERE'S A PERFECT GIRL at every school, yours included. You know her. Beautiful. Talented. Smart. Great parents. Cool boyfriend. You can't even hate her, because, of course, she's sonice.

At Forest Hills High, Lara Ardeche is that girl.

But things can change.

"Skillfully drawn, resulting in a compelling story. . . . An enjoyable andthought-provoking read."-"School

Library Journal"

"Readers will be totally caught up in Lara's struggle to find her true self under allthat weight."-"Booklist"

"An ALA Best Books for Young Adults"

"From the Hardcover edition."
