Meg (Eggy) has a T2P2 (The Totally Perfect Person) for a sister. The whole world revolves around her sister and all Meg has is two “sort of” friends who communicate with her via her blog. They share all their emotions and stories including the illness of Cara, Meg’s sister. Through the understanding of Cara’s illness, bulimia, Meg also discovered another serious scar that Cara bears; Cara was date raped by her boyfriend. Meg tries to help her sister to cop with bulimia, restore Cara's self esteem and to patch up their relationship as sisters and family again. The book is written in blog. There is a glossary in the front of the book for the readers. For those who enjoy reading blogs as well as relationship between sisters, this is a great novel. The illustrations by Tyler Beauford enhance the story greatly.
