Summary

A riveting debut that combines the relentless immediacy of Thirteen Reasons Why with the can't-look-away drama of TV shows like Biggest Loser. 
 
A  lonely obese boy everyone calls "Butter" is about to make history. He  is going to eat himself to death-live on the Internet-and everyone is  invited to watch. When he first makes the announcement online to his  classmates, Butter expects pity, insults, and possibly sheer  indifference. What he gets are morbid cheerleaders rallying around his  deadly plan. Yet as their dark encouragement grows, it begins to feel a  lot like popularity. And that feels good. But what happens when Butter  reaches his suicide deadline? Can he live with the fallout if he doesn't  go through with his plans?  
 
With a deft hand, Erin Jade Lange  allows readers to identify with both the bullies and the bullied in this  all-consuming look at one teen's battle with himself.
