So, for those of you who are not signed up for my newsletter or in my street team (both of which I highly recommend because you hear about everything first!) you may want to know that after some contemplation and feedback from readers, the cover, title, and blurb for Something of Substance have changed. The book is also now available at ALL digital retailers! So, you can pick it up at your retailer of choice (Apple, Kobo, B&N etc).
Without further ado, here it is...
I lost forty pounds after a stint in fat camp my sophomore year.
Prior to losing weight, most of my time was spent comparing myself to my twin sister and trying to hide my cankles.
However, losing weight changed everything.
Now, I'm popular, vying for the hottest guy in school, and competing for a prom queen nomination. Finally, I'm getting noticed, and it's all because I dropped the pounds.
Everything I ever wanted is right at my fingertips.
If only I could lose more weight, and I'd be perfect.
But my friend Jake tells me I want all the wrong things. He thinks I'm already perfect.
Sometimes you can't see what's right in front of you. Like how I'm spiraling in a deadly game of self-acceptance. Or how, despite being my best friend's brother, Jake has always been the one to catch me when I fall.
Can he catch me again? Or am I too far gone?
If you like emotional contemporary YA, you will fall in love with Souders' heart-wrenching novel. Like Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why and Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall, More Than a Number raises thought-provoking questions about love and acceptance, as well as the cost of beauty.
