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.

*Warning: My intention is to present the issue of eating disorders in the most respectful and accessible way possible, while still being true to the physically and emotionally damaging nature of these behaviors.

I love this beginning! I love how descriptive it is. I literally pictured myself diving in the pool with her! Can't wait to read more :)

It might take me a while to start reading this, but just wanted to say that it's awesome you have a book about male eating disorders. They have almost NO representation.

I love swimming! The characters in my story In Your Dreams share a passion for swimming, and they're really good friends with something dangerous to figure out, too, but in regards to completely different subject matter. I look forward to exploring the wonderful world of swimming here too!

I love this so much... It reminds me of the poem by Robert Frost- "Nothing Gold Can Stay". I love the description so far!!
