Back Cover Summary[]

Weight: 103 lbs.

Goal: 90 lbs.

Starting today, I, Maggie Blume, vow to write down every bite that goes into my mouth.


Maggie can’t do much about the demands her dad puts on her or her mother’s alcoholism, or even her insecurity about being the lead singer of her band, Vanish. The only thing that she can control is what she eats or more accurately, what she doesn’t eat.

Losing weight makes her feel clean; it gives her the power she so desperately wants. When Maggie’s friends begin to worry that she has an eating disorder, Maggie doesn’t care. It’s her body; it’s her life which is what her mom says about her drinking problem.

Could Maggie and her mom have more in common than she thinks?
