From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up-A collection of stories, essays, and poetry written by both teenage girls and adult women who are dealing with body-image issues. The text looks at the idea of self- and body acceptance at a time when "thin is in." Many of the selections were written by survivors of eating disorders. These stories in particular give readers a sense of light at the end of the tunnel. Gently, and at times not so gently, Kirberger's collection coaxes readers to find answers for themselves through the experiences of other teenagers. Though no new ground is broken here, this book will give readers a valid forum to explore the topic.
