Karla Fitzhugh trained as a doctor and nutritionist and began writing while working medical esearch. She writes widely on health, lifestyle and youth issues.Review:
Should be in every classroom from 8-year-olds upwards ... I particularly liked the advice for young people to write directly to magazine editors where they feel that stick-thin models are lauded, or that unhealthy foods are promoted ... The opinions of young people themselves are quoted throughout the book, boys as well as girls, and the 10-year-old reader on whom I tested the book said he was most impressed that it was not just a girl's book. --School Librarian 20040901
