Ellie, cicciottella e decisamente meno bella delle sue inseparabili amiche Nadine e Magda, comincia a non mangiare più. Le due amiche le danno della pazza, ma per loro è facile: Nadine è una ragazza copertina, Magda è incredibilmente attraente. Che fare? Arriva a sfiorare l'anoressia. Dopo che Nadine ha perso un concorso di bellezza, Magda ha rischiato di essere violentata e, soprattutto, un'altra ragazza finisce all'ospedale per anoressia, Ellie finalmente si scuote. Comincia così per lei un lento ritorno alla normalità. Età di lettura: da 11 anni.
