My name is Lilah and I’m sixteen years old. I’m not particularly pretty and I’ve been overweight most of my life, but I’ve been working out for over a year and I’m feeling better about myself.
I was hoping this school year would be different with my new look and all, AND since a hot boy moved in across the street from me. It’s not like I was expecting him to be my boyfriend or anything, but I was hoping we would at least be friends before school started. He doesn’t seem to notice me at all, though. In fact, he’s downright unfriendly.
Some of the kids from school have been acting weird around me. Like Marco who is the best looking guy in school and the most popular. He has never spoken to me before, but now he suddenly wants to be my friend. Why? His girlfriend is super gorgeous. Even if I wanted to, there’s no way I could compete with her. Plus, my best friend Daisy would kill me if I went for him. She has been in love with him since forever. Besides, I’m not popular and I have no interest in being friends with any of the popular kids. They aren’t even nice to me, especially Marco’s best friend, Trey who is a bully.
Why Daisy wants to be one of them is beyond me. She is my only real friend, but she has been acting weird lately, too. I have the feeling that I’m going to lose her.
This school year is turning out to be different, but definitely not what I was expecting.
