Every girl has thought about her body and we all have some imperfection that we torment ourselves about, but not everyone can compare their insecurities to those of a 15-year-old girl named Ever. Since her mother died when she was little, Ever turned to food for therapy. By the time she turned 15, Ever weighed over 300 pounds. To add insult to injury, Ever’s father remarried and she has to live with her stepmom and her two beautiful, skinny stepsisters. To deal with the horrors of high school and the drama at home, Ever has her trusty, everpresent cruel conscience, appropriately named Skinny, and her best friend Rat. Skinny whispers what Ever is sure everyone says about her behind her back.
