Description
 

The most popular guy at his high school, 17-year-old Parker Rabinowitz is wealthy, smart, and drop-dead handsome. Hes a sure thing for HYP (Harvard, Yale, or Princeton) according to his college consultant, whom Parker has worked with since he was 14. Parkers got just one problem: hes bulimic. Nothing is presented in two distinct first-person voices - those of Parker and his 14-year-old sister, Danielle. Parker tells his side of the story in present-tense narrative, which becomes progressively more stripped down as hes consumed by the disorder. Danielle tells her side of the story in free verse. Danielle, who is barely even acknowledged by their achievement-obsessed parents, is known in school as Parkers sister. Despite all this, Danielle loves her brother. And shes the only one who seems to notice whats happening behind Parkers perfect-seeming exterior, as he disappears into a world of deception and desperation. Complex and realistic, this novels ultimate message is one of hope.
