Bulimia doesn't affect guys. And guys don't diet. That's according to Sean Roemer, Katy's best friend and fellow diver on Franklin High School's varsity team. He admits you do what you have to do, sometimes, to make weight for a meet. But he doesn't think he has a problem. Even as Katy tries to get him to acknowledge his denial, she can't see the danger she puts herself in. The only things Katy cares about in the world are diving and her friendship with Sean. If she doesn't figure out what's going on soon, she could lose everything.

I was browsing through #diving and found your story. It's nice to see another one written about my favorite sport. Best of luck with it. :)

This is very well  written: proper grammar, proper sentence structure and  showing not telling. I'm excited to keep reading! Like @flaurel said that last line is a great hook.

This is a really short first chapter, but it makes a powerful impact. Especially the last sentence - which is, IMO, the hook of this chapter. :)
