Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed “America’s Fattest Teen.” Following her mom’s death, she’s been picking up the pieces in the privacy of her home, dealing with her heartbroken father and her own grief. Now, Libby’s ready: for high school, for new friends, for love and for every possibility life has to offer. Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin, too. Yes, he’s got swagger, but he’s also mastered the impossible art of giving people what they want, of fitting in. What no one knows is that Jack has a newly acquired secret: he can’t recognize faces. So he tells himself to play it cool: Be charming. Be hilarious. Don’t get too close to anyone.
