Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven 4/5
Libby is 16.  When she was 13, she was named "America's Fattest Teen" and had to be cut out of her house.  Now, she's lost a lot of weight, but she's still pretty big.  She's finally going back to school.  She is confident and excited and loves to dance.  Jack is 17.  He has prosopagnosia, which means he can't recognize faces.  No one knows this about him, except that he tells Libby.  They become unlikely friends, and then maybe more!  Kind of like a Rainbow Rowell book.  I really liked it.  Although I have no idea why it's called Holding Up the Universe.
