Award-winning author Catherine Atkins unveils the complex lives of today's teens in a story told through the raw, uncensored voices of its young characters. Shy, fat Susan Calloway knows she has nothing in common with the five other students in the afterschool group counseling sessions she's forced to attend to avoid expulsion. But as Susan and the others verbally attack each other and defend their own viewpoints each week, they begin to understand that none of their lives are as simple and straightforward as they appear on the surface.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Carefully nuanced connections between characters plus insight into the adolescent ability to use low self-esteem as a cruel weapon catapults Atkins’s novel of troubled teens well above the familiarity of its trappings. Each of Atkins’s characters emerges, fully formed from these pages.”
