About this product
- DescriptionThe most popular guy at his high school, 17-year-old Parker Rabiwitz is wealthy, smart, and drop-dead handsome. He's a sure thing for HYP (Harvard, Yale, or Princeton) according to his college consultant, whom Parker has worked with since he was 14. Parker's got just one problem: he's 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 he's consumed by the disorder.Danielle tells her side of the story in free verse. Danielle, who is barely even ackwledged by their achievement-obsessed parents, is kwn in school as 'Parker's sister'. Despite all this, Danielle loves her brother. And she's the only one who seems to tice what's happening behind Parker's perfect-seeming exterior, as he disappears into a world of deception and desperation. Complex and realistic, this vel's ultimate message is one of hope.
