Ann is always on a diet. She’s 16 years old and wears a size 17. This book describes her journey through yet another fad diet and is another book where I cried several times while I was reading. I related to Ann so much, not as a teenager, but as an adult who struggles with my weight. I was lucky as a teenager to be naturally trim without being on a diet or exercising. I saw a lot of myself in both Ann and her mom.
One of the best parts of this story is the friendship that Ann began with Raynee. Every girl should have a friend like Raynee. I want one. Raynee helps Ann become a better person and see things with a new perspective. She really opens Ann’s eyes to certain things in her life.
I would recommend this book to every girl and to anyone who enjoys a book about relationships, cliques, and parent/teenager conflict.
