Floating in the pool like a starfish is the only place 11-year-old Ellie feels weightless. Everywhere else she is burdened by people’s perceptions of her. Bullied relentlessly about her weight, Ellie finds allies in her father, a therapist and her new next door neighbor and learns to stand up for herself, abandon her fat girl rules, and take up space, even outside the pool. Powerful, sometimes painful, kid-sized critique of diet culture and fat shaming.
