Looks by Madeleine George
Meghan's life at school is miserable. She is very overweight and the constant target for abuse by the jocks at school. Meghan has found that although she is very visible in one sense, she is nearly invisible at her school because no one bothers to talk with her or even notice her. She was best friends with Cara growing up but when the girls hit middle school Cara rudely dropped Meghan in order to become more popular herself. Meghan is so overlooked that she's able to get passes to sign herself out of class from a desk in the front office whenever she wants. One of her favorite hiding places is in the nurse's office and it is there where she first encounters Aimee, an anorexic girl. Aimee is also almost invisible but she is a gifted poet and takes a chance to join the school literary magazine staff which is run by Cara. Knowing how hurtful Cara can be, Meghan tries to warn Aimee and together they plot revenge on everyone who has hurt both of them.
