Holding Up the Universe

Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, but no one seems able to look past her weight.

When Libby and Jack meet through a cruel high school game, they form an improbable friendship and start to feel less alone. 

From the author of the New York Times bestseller All the Bright Places comes a heart-wrenching story about what it means to see someone—and love someone—for who they truly are.
