Victoria Ying's first graphic novel for Young Adults is garnering rave reviews from critics and readers.

From the publisher:

A beautiful and heart-wrenching young adult graphic novel takes a look at eating disorders, family dynamics, and ultimately, a journey to self-love.

Valerie Chu is quiet, studious, and above all, thin. No one, not even her best friend Jordan, knows that she has been binging and purging for years. But when tragedy strikes, Val finds herself taking a good, hard look at her priorities, her choices, and her own body. The path to happiness may lead her away from her hometown and her mother's toxic projections--but first she will have to find the strength to seek help.

Grade level 10-12
Age Range 14-18

"A gorgeously wrought, therapeutic story filled with tenderness and honesty."--Kirkus, starred review

"Ying gives readers an authentic, layered portrayal of disordered eating in both Val and her mother, sympathetic to each woman but also not letting them off the hook for their own contributions to a fatphobic society obsessed with making body size a moral measuring stick."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Ying's soft artwork, colored in pastel pinks and blues, nicely evokes Val's emotional journey through facial expressions and body language."--Booklist

Ying, Victoria
