This is a graphic novel about a high school student who fakes a peanut allergy in order to stand out. As time goes on, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep up the story. It is interesting and unique and makes a great book discussion title.

How can a girl fake an allergy to peanuts and expect to get friends at her new school? Love, lies, and truths intertwine in this graphic novel and you'll just be amused and surprised.
