I almost passed this book over, but happily something stayed my hand. Fifteen year old Yasmin Laksaris - obese and taunted by her classmates - is one of the most compelling characters I've come across. The story took me right inside her teenage psyche. An effortless read that will have you squirming in your comfy chair.
I was vigilant, and I wouldn't have missed you because of being distracted by friends because I don't have any. People look at me and think the same as I thought when I saw you: freak. So I figured, as well as feeling compelled to stare at Alice Taylor, being freaks was something else we had in common.
