9781897066614: Body Talk: The Straight Facts on Fitness, Nutrition, and Feeling Great About Yourself! (Girl Zone)

In a culture obsessed with physical perfection, it’s no easy feat to have a positive self-image especially for adolescent girls. Part of the Girl Zone series, Body Talk challenges girls to rethink the image-conscious advertising that saturates the tween/teen market. With frank information on eating disorders, fad diets, and the business of beauty, the book tackles weighty issues with humor and insight. Written by award-winning author Ann Douglas and her teenage daughter Julie, Body Talk arms girls with the information and tools needed to make healthy decisions, including tips for getting active, staying motivated, planning a balanced diet, and how to take care of themselves inside and out.
