“I’d been sitting here wishing on a star, the moon, genies, birthday cakes, wishing wells, whatever I could think of that would make what just happened not be true. I’d never had a wish granted in my life. That was the stuff kids believed in. I wasn’t a kid anymore…”
Plain. Invisible. Ugly. Fat.
When nineteen year old Evelyn Barns wakes up two hundred and forty-three pounds lighter, her heart’s desire suddenly becomes her curse.
“Your fate is in your hands,” were the witch’s words, but when every bad deed counts, there’s not much she can do to stop the weight from packing back on, even with coke as her new best friend. It was all moving too fast, her pain only masked by a high that was becoming harder to keep. A new life and social status was all she ever wanted but what she finds leaves her drowning in a beautiful nightmare that only gets worse.
Suicidal and guilt ridden, Evelyn must decide if loving herself is worth letting go of everything else.
There was beauty somewhere in there. She just had to find it.
