Don’t Call Me Kit Kat
Junior high is where things really start to happen. Cliques form and break apart. Couples are made and destroyed. And a reputation is solidified that you won’t ever be able to escape. Everything you do and say, and everyone you spend your time with, matters.
Katie Mills knows that. She gets it. That’s why she tried so hard to get in with the cool girls at school. And why she was so devastated when those efforts found her detained for shoplifting and laughed out of cheer squad tryouts.
But Katie has more to worry about than just fitting in. Her parents are divorced and always fighting. Her sister never has time for her. And her friends all seem to be drifting apart. Even worse? The boy she has a crush on is dating the mean girl at school.
Everything is a mess, and Katie doesn’t feel like she has control over any of it. Certainly not over her weight, which has always topped out at slightly pudgier than normal—at least, according to her mother.
So when she happens to catch one of the popular girls throwing up in the bathroom one day, it sparks an idea. A match that quickly engulfs her life in flames.
Is there any going back once she gets started down this path?
And would she even want to if she could?

What readers have said about Don’t Call Me Kit Kat:
“In this hard-hitting YA novel, a teenage girl wrestles with low self-esteem, body image issues, and an eating disorder…Farnham has created a powerfully relatable character in Katie, whose struggles to fit in will ring true for many.“ – Kirkus Reviews
“Katie’s personality immerses readers not just in the events surrounding her life, but in her responses to them – and that makes for a compelling read that’s hard to put down.” – D. Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
“A powerful, honest YA novel. A finalist and highly recommended.” – The Wishing Shelf Book Awards
“This book was beautifully written and accurately depicted the voice of a teenager. This didn’t sound like an adult trying to sound like a teenager, it felt real.” – Reviews of A Shameless Fangirl
“I had to stop and read this book in several sittings because I needed to get myself together. The story within is heartbreaking and beautiful. It’s about learning to let go, forgive oneself, and heal. It’s also about friendships–both good and bad; communication–or the lack thereof; and the phenomenon that seems to be the desire to fit in.” – Maria, Goodreads Reviewer
