I hate mirrors.

Glass is dangerous.

Water is dangerous.

Windows are dangerous.

Anything that reflects me back at myself is a threat.


No.1 New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz's powerful new novel depicts one teen's battle with self-doubt and bulimia, and shows that the struggle to find someone to love starts with oneself

Olivia "Liv" Blakely knows how important it is to look good. Her father is running for governor, and Liv will be making public appearances with her family. Liv has an image to uphold — to her maybe-boyfriend, to the new friends who suddenly welcome her into their circle, and to the public who love to find fault on social media. Everyone is looking.

Liv's sunny, charming facade hides a dark inner voice that will settle for nothing less than perfection. No matter who she has to give up to get there. No matter what she has to lose to do it. Liv is working for the day that what she sees in the mirror is worthy...worthy of confidence. Worthy of success. Worthy of love. But as the high price of perfection takes a toll, placing her body and soul at risk, Liv herself has to realise what she has to live for.


"I have a love / hate relationship with this book. On the one hand I really loved it, but on the other hand I can understand how problematic this is and can be detrimental for people suffering from eating disorders, self harm and associated mental health conditions. I'd approach this one with caution."-Laura
