Fat. Wait, no. Fatter. I distinctly remember when I admitted it to myself, the first time I willingly stepped onto the weighing scale in my bathroom. Sure. I saw it coming.

When Aimee gains weight over the summer, she becomes a whole new person. Her mother doesn't exactly help the situation by acting cold and distant, the mysterious boy named James is acting odd, and her childhood friend is going out with her best friend, Vic. When a slot for a column in the school newsletter opens, she grabs the slot and vents her fat, little heart out. Under the alias 'Ex.L', she grabs the attention of the whole school and later, the nation. The catch? The paper is selling out, media is everywhere, and everyone wants to know who 'Ex.L' is. Will she remain undiscovered and find love along the way?
