Bullies, body issues, and disordered eating neatly hidden behind middle-school guy humor and sports. IOW: an excellent choice for the 8th grade summer reading book IF ONLY IT WERE STILL IN PRINT GOD DAMMIT.

And now that I'm finished--yeah, this would have been perfect, if only it met the criteria of BEING AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE. There's a mostly-unrealistic scene at the end with the bully ((view spoiler)) but I've seen much, much worse culminations of that moment, so I'm willing to let it go. Maybe if I lobby the publisher, I can get it in paperback in time for May?
