Summary

Reader beware: You'll think you know what's happening, and you'll think you see what's coming next… But you'll be very, very wrong. 

Fifteen-year-old Yasmin Doner is a social misfit—obese, obsessive and deemed a freak by her peers at school. Yasmin yearns for a sense of belonging, finding comfort only in food and the fantasy of being close to Alice Taylor, a girl at school. Yasmin will do anything to become friends with pretty and popular Alice—even if Alice, like everyone else, thinks she's a freak. 

When Yasmin notices a sinister-looking man watching Alice from the school fence, she imagines he is plotting to abduct her. Yasmin decides to find out more about this man so that when he takes Alice, Yasmin will be the only one who can save her—and so will finally win Alice's friendship. But as Yasmin forges a relationship with this man, who is kinder to her than anyone else, her affections begin to shift. 

Perhaps she was wrong about him. Perhaps she doesn't need Alice after all… 

And then Alice vanishes.
