A brand new novel by bestselling author of Burning Moon, Jo Watson. A story of body-positivity and self-love, perfect for fans of Dumplin' and Leah On The Offbeat.
Can you truly be yourself in a one-size-fits-all world?
Lori Palmer is the new girl at Bay Water High, where students prize glossy hair, beach bodies, and school spirit above all else. She misses her old school-where her talent as an artist carried more weight than she does-and longs for her old family life, before her parents got divorced and her mum reinvented herself.
Lori decides that the only way to survive is to blend into the background. But her plans go awry when her brother befriends Jake - the most popular (and hottest) guy at school -'s sister. Lori is suddenly thrust into Jake's unfamiliar and exhilarating world of water polo, parties, and stargazing.
As old anxieties resurface, Lori finds a new artistic release that unknowingly ignites a powerful movement. When the authorities start asking questions, Lori realizes that finding her voice might have gotten her into a world of trouble...but sometimes standing up for what you believe in is as important as standing up for yourself.
