Fourteen-year-old Juliette lives in the country with her father and her older brother. When Juliette was younger, her mother left the family to pursue her career in New York. From that moment, Juliette started to gain weight. Today, she’s not obese, but she’s clearly the heaviest girl at her high school. That doesn’t stop her from being vivacious, funny and unrepentantly rebellious. Juliette has big dreams: she wants to throw the best parties, move to New York to live with her mother, and date the most gorgeous guy in her school, an older boy who is about to graduate. In short, she wants everything she can’t have—which sometimes makes her forget to value those who really appreciate her, in particular her friend Leanne, who is secretly in love with her…
