"A person should eat to live, not live to eat," Mom reminded me with a frown directed at the syrup bottle I was clutching. She just doesn´t understand that sometimes Mrs. Butterworth, Chef Boyardee, and Sarah Lee are the only friends I have in the world.
Meet Maud Grover, a sarcastic, antisocial fourteen-year-old who eats her feelings and talks to food. During her first terrifying year of high school, she meets four people who will change her life:
An Enemy - Gabby, a skinny cheerleader craving the limelight
A Friend - Audrey, a theatrical hopeless romantic craving the ideal
A Crush - Zeek, a dashing socialite craving popularity
A Confidant - Black Jack, a roguish sk8ter craving authenticity
In this story about food, flaws, failings, and faith, each will show Maud who she truly is.
