Summary

Felipe gets it – he’s fat. Not chubby or big-boned, just fat. And he doesn’t need anyone to remind him, but of course that’s what everyone does. That’s why he has been waiting all year for school break. Finally, he’ll be able to spend some time far away from school and the classmates who tease him incessantly. His plans include catching up on his favourite TV shows, finishing his to-be-read pile, and watching YouTube tutorials on skills he’ll never actually use.
But things don’t go his way when his mom informs him that Caio, the neighbour kid from apartment 57, will be spending the next 15 days with them while his parents are away. Felipe is distraught, because he’s always had a crush on Caio, but has a list of body image insecurities, and he has no idea how he’s going to entertain Caio for two weeks. Felipe is forced to face his insecurities, and process all of his feelings, whilst trying to win over Caio.
