Fifteen-year-old Ivy's world is in flux. Her dad has moved out, her mother is withdrawn, her brother is off at college and her best friend, Anna, has grown distant. Worst of all, Ivy's body won’t stop expanding. Everything feels off-kilter until a skipped meal leads to a boost in confidence and reminds Ivy that her life is her own. But when her disordered eating leads to missed opportunities and a devastating health scare, Ivy realizes that she must weigh her mother's issues against her own, and discover what it means to be a part of --- and apart from --- her family.
