Release Day: Holding Out For A Zero by Heather Wardell

About the Book
“I’m doing the right thing, not feeding myself. It’s the only thing I can do, so I
will do it. Gloria can somehow have the energy I don’t take in, and it will
help her stay alive.”
Twenty years ago, fourteen-year-old Valerie rushed
off for lunch with her boyfriend instead of properly putting away a packet of
balloons, and her little brother choked to death on his third birthday. In
response, Valerie locked down every aspect of her life so she could never lose
control like that again, and she’s still doing that today.

So when her sister Gloria is found comatose after
an apparently random attack, Valerie is desperate to do something, anything, to
save her only remaining sibling. But as a financial controller for a
“nothing bigger than a size six” fashion designer, she has no medical
background and no idea of how to help. But she has to find a way.

Since Gloria has always wanted to be a size zero,
Valerie hits on food as the answer: by eating less, she will lose the weight
Gloria now can’t and somehow save her sister that way. But when “eating
less” turns into a frantic starvation diet to reach size zero before
Gloria dies, will Valerie’s self control save her sister or destroy her own life?

Claire keeps bumping into people from her past as she struggles to shake her “better than everybody” reputation, make peace with her enemies, and even attempts to rekindle an old flame.
