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.Acclaim for ButterAn ABC New Voices PickAbraham Lincoln MasterlistNevada Young Readers Award nomineeIowa High School Book Award nomineeSakura Medal winnerWaterstones Children's Book Prize nominee South Carolina Young Adult Book Award nomineeBlue Hen Book Award nomineeTAYSHAS ListTeens' Top Ten Pick
