All of Emily’s friends seem so perfect. They’re skinny and pretty, and,
of course, are fun and flirty to boot. Especially Leah, who, as Emily
remembers it, used to be the chubby girl in school. Now Leah is on her
way toward becoming America’s next top model. Literally.
Emily loathes her slightly overweight body, her insecure
personality, and sometimes even her “perfect” friends. As Leah and
Becca, another gorgeous friend, discuss the latest fashion trends and
“magical thigh-reducing creams,” Emily’s secret bitterness begins to eat
away at her soul. Emily takes drastic measures putting herself in
danger of death, which she will only avoid if she comes to terms with
the issues weighing down her heavy heart.
