A darkly comic, but equally tragic account of a young girl’s 12 year battle with both anorexia and bulimia. This well-crafted and intensely personal story captures both the agony and ecstasy that comes with such acute bodily harm.
15-year-old Vernon is detained after his best friend kills their classmates and himself. But, the authorities need to blame someone. And so begins a darkly comic road trip: taking him from a dusty Texas backwater to the glitzy beaches of Acapulco. And back again.
Two best friends are reunited after a year apart. But while one has remained mousy and awkward, the other has blossomed into the kind of girl everyone wants to date. Which is fine... until they both fall for the same guy.
