ButterButter by Erin Jade Lange
$16.99 hardcover | Buy now »

Butter
is an intense look at one teen's struggle with food and depression. J.P. (aka "Butter") has a compulsive overeating disorder and is dangerously obese. Tired of being the "fat kid" at school, he decides to end it all by binge eating to death on New Year's Eve, an act which will stream live on his website, butterslastmeal.com. When Butter's morbid website sweeps him into the "cool" crowd, he must decide if popularity is worth dying for. It takes courage to write this sort of true-to-life story, unveiling a world we may not want to acknowledge. I think many teens will connect with Butter's quest for acceptance. —Brandi

PLEASE NOTE: Erin Jade Lange signs and discusses Butter at Changing Hands on Saturday, September 22. More info »
