Tdr85 | 28 comments I don't recall exactly what made girl become a pariah, not even sure if she remained at same school, but she is befriended at lunch by a chunky girl with an odd stare and way about her who eventually tells her it looked like she needed a friend. Near end of story protagonist is at school assembly and remembers how she was befriended.

About 2 yrs ago. I believe it was written within last 5 yrs. Can't remember cover at all.

If it's possible that it's an older book, Norma Howe's In With the Out Crowd sounds similar as well.

I don't think it was Speak though I have wanted to read that book. I'm pretty sure it's a recent book. I wish I could remember more details.
