From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up Anorexia nervosa continues to be a high-interest topic, but here it is treated in a mediocre novel. Pudgy Jennifer begins to diet and soon becomes obsessed. Her parents, who are portrayed as the cause of Jennifer's problems, are the last to notice the change in their daughter. Characterizations are extreme and one dimensional, the plot is predictable, and the complexities of human psychology and behavior are oversimplified. Discriminating readers would be better served by Steven Levenkron's The Best Little Girl in the World (Warner, 1979) or Ivy Ruckman's The Hunger Scream (Walker, 1983), both of which have better characterizations and more skillful prose. Patty Stren's I Was a 15-Year-Old Blimp (Harper, 1985) is a more humorous, but believable, treatment of this serious subject and is a much better choice for younger readers. Susan H. Williamson, Saltsburg Junior/Senior High School, Pa.
