Despite crippling anxiety, Skyler Reeds has weathered her parents’ divorce and, along with her twin sister Katy, has moved to her mom’s boyfriend’s house in Burlington, Vermont. Now Skyler has to deal with living in a new blended household and brave a new high school while dealing with worsening dermatillomania, a disorder that causes her to obsessively pick her skin. Skyler’s only refuge is her singing voice, which she’s silenced as her face fills with wounds and scars. But Skyler is given a chance to join the school’s elite chorus—a dream come true. Skyler has tried so hard to be invisible, but this might be her one chance to shine.
