June is fat. June also has an eating disorder, but no one sees. When she doesn’t eat, her friends and family think they see a fat girl on a diet, not someone starving herself. When June’s secret is found out by Toby, the new boy next door, she is panicked. Then she learns he also has a secret. Everyone has their own little lies.
I was excited to read this book but for me, it being in verse form really took a lot away from the story. I felt like a lot things were glossed over (IE her mom, the relationship with Toby, Recovery). This would have been a great story if it was longer or not in verse form. I’m not even sure what Toby’s lie was? It just really fell flat for me.
