Discover how self-perception can turn your life around in this inspiring story!

Everyday there is another person who says to themselves, "Not many other people know what I'm going through. I know what I'm doing is harmful, but it's what gets me to tomorrow."

In this touching, dark, realistic story about Erin, a girl who's suffered through loss, self-esteem issues, and an eating disorder she takes on the world one step at a time and through her delusions decides not only to save herself, but also her life-long love Lenny Weir. This story is full of memorable music moments and how they've shaped her life for better or for worse. It's all about the grunge scene, and you'll be inspired by Erin's transformation from the beginning of the book to the very end.

Try saying "no" to this relatable story, you won't regret the quick and gritty read.
