Wracked with guilt due to a horrific accident that maimed her best friend two years earlier, sixteen-year-old Bett's life is a series of pluses and minuses. But when the pluses start to outweigh the minuses, Bett is forced to confront her self-harming behavior in this powerful novel about self-forgiveness.

Two years ago, Bett was badass. Fearless, feisty, athletic; the type of person who'd bike down a mountain ledge just for the thrill of it. Give her a dare and she'd get it done, no question. But then she dared a friend, and instead of a thrill came horror and guilt.

Now Bett divides her life into Pluses and Minuses. Pluses are anything that make her feel good, things she doesn't--nope, no way, no how--deserve. Minuses are punishments she doles out to herself--literally, in the form of binge eating--when a Plus can't be avoided. Now, Bett is extremely overweight, depressed, and the opposite of badass. Which makes her happy. But is that a Plus? Bett's system is beginning to crack, and revelations of that prank-gone-wrong are threatening to come out.

Just Wreck It All is a blaze of a novel about guilt and self-harm that explores how easy it is to punish ourselves, and just how difficult it is to find the power to forgive ourselves.
