Angie is broken--by her can't-be-bothered mother, by her high-school tormenters, and by being the only one who thinks her varsity-athlete-turned-war-hero sister is still alive. Having failed to kill herself--in front of a gym full of kids--Angie's back at high school just trying to make it through each day. That is, until the arrival of KC Romance, a girl who knows too well that the package doesn't always match what's inside. With an offbeat sensibility and mean girls to rival a horror classic, this darkly comic anti-romantic romance will appeal to anyone who likes entertaining and meaningful fiction.
