A must-read for anyone who struggles to be happy in their own skin. Chelsea Duvay is so many things. She's an avid musical lover, she's a gifted singer, and she has the most perfect, beautiful feet. But no one ever notices that. All they notice is Chelsea's weight. Daily, Chelsea endures endless comments about her appearance from well-meaning adults and cruel classmates. So she keeps to herself and just tries to make it through. Don't make waves. Don't draw attention. That's how life is for Chelsea--until a special class project pushes the energetic and incessantly social Melody into Chelsea's world. As their unlikely friendship grows, Chelsea emerges from her isolated existence, and she begins to find the confidence to enjoy life. But bullies are bullies, and they remain as vicious as ever. One terrible encounter threatens to destroy everything Chelsea has worked so hard to achieve. Readers will be captivated by Chelsea's journey as she discovers the courage to declare her own beauty and self-worth, no matter what others might think.

Review quote

This is not an easy or happy story, but it is a hopeful one. In the end, the title says it all: Chelsea is a nice girl who finds a support system that will help her not only endure, but hopefully thrive. . . .Chelsea is an engaging, well drawn character who has the reader shivering and itching, and eventually cheering for her.-- "VOYA"
