Sixteen year old Valerie Chu is quiet, studious, and above all thin. No one, not even her best friend Jordan, suspects that she has been binging and purging for years. But Valerie's life, and priorities, are upended when her father dies abruptly. At home, she abandons her ED patterns as she tries to comfort her mother and little brother.

Val begins to reevaluate her life, her choices, and her own body. She realizes that the path to happiness might lead her away from her hometown and her mother's toxic projections. But first she must apologize to Jordan and find the strength to seek help.

This beautiful and heart wrenching young adult graphic novel takes a look at eating disorders, family dynamics, and, ultimately, a journey to self love.
