He loves me.

He loves me not.

He loves me.

He does. He really does.


Amalia knows Maggie’s eating disorder is becoming severe and makes it her mission to learn all she can to get Maggie the help she needs.

Amalia and Dawn try to talk to Maggie but can’t seem to get the words right. Amalia’s mom suggests that Maggie go to a therapist she knows, but Maggie will only go if Amalia goes with her.

The healing process is going to be slow, and meanwhile, Vanish has its first paying gig to play.

Between Maggie and the band, Amalia has a lot to take care of. In fact, there’s so much to do that it seems like there’s not a lot of time left over for her own life.
