A heartfelt novel about the disturbing "choking game"-and one girl's struggle for self-acceptance

If she could-if her parents would let her-seventh-grader Windy would change everything about herself. She'd get highlights in her hair and a new wardrobe; she'd wear makeup. But nothing ever changes. The mean girls at school are still mean, and Windy's best friend, Elena, is still more interested in making up words than talking about boys.

And then one day, Windy gets the change she's been looking for. New girl Nina-impossibly cool, confident, and not afraid of anyone-starts hanging out with Windy! Nina even wants to be "breath sisters." Windy isn't sure what that means exactly, but she knows she wants to find out. It sounds even better than a BFF.

Windy is right, at first. Being a breath sister gains her a whole new set of friends-girls she feels closer to and cooler with than anyone else. But her inclusion comes at a dangerous price. Windy wants to change everything about her life...but is she really willing to give up everything in the process?

Diana López is the author of Confetti Girl. She was a middle school teacher for more than a decade, and saw firsthand the disturbing "choking game" trend. Currently, Diana teaches literature and creative writing at the University of Houston in Victoria, Texas. For more information about Diana and her books, visit her online at www.dianalopezbooks.com.
