But when Andrew finds out why there was a spot for enter in the first place, he gets curious...I realy do recommend this book because it makes you see through a perspective of not only a boy but a fat nerd boy. It really makes you feel for the kids and might remind you of personal experinces. If you were a cheerleader or jock or maybe even fat. I liked the book because it makes me feel thankful of how much I weigh and how high school really is going to change me.
