In Worthy of Love: Adrian Carter is a young mixed-race teen struggling with poor self-image, but he’s through with being bullied for his weight. Adrian decides to shed the pounds, no matter what it takes. When he meets and falls for Mel Woods, a confident and sensible girl with a passion for fitness, his motivation to change leads him to take dangerous measures.
