If you scrolled through the Instagram feed of year-old Maddy Holleran, you would see a perfect life: a freshman at an Ivy League school, recruited for the track team, who was also beautiful, popular, and fiercely intelligent. But when Maddy began her long-awaited college career, her parents noticed something changed.
