    This was such a meaningful exploration into self image and value Each girl in this series brings something completely different and their friendship is so supportive.

    I have chosen this book to review as it is one that particularly stands out in my mind going back to my earlier years of finishing primary school and entering second level This writing is based around a young girl who begins, in the shadow of her skinny beautiful model friends, to self deprecate and struggle with weight and appearance issues It is a book that portrays some very serious issues around self esteem, and zones in on the dynamics of the pressures of being a teenager in the 21st ce I have chosen this book to review as it is one that particularly stands out in my mind going back to my earlier years of finishing primary school and entering second level This writing is based around a young girl who begins, in the shadow of her skinny beautiful model friends, to self deprecate and struggle with weight and appearance issues It is a book that portrays some very serious issues around self esteem, and zones in on the dynamics of the pressures of being a teenager in the 21st century, giving a very real depiction of the thought processes of a young girl suffering from an eating disorder It is innocently written yet is unusually entertaining in how the story is illustrated As an adult reading this again, I realise the passiveness we can portray to child and teenage hang ups, seeing these issues as phases or sometimes simply plots for attention Yet overall, if not addressed in a viable way, this kind of self evaluation can have massive impact on the ability and stability of that child to grow in a healthy and fulfilled way I have chosen this specifically as, even though I am working towards becoming a primary teacher, these issues are something that are comingandto the forefront in recent years, andattention is being given to such matters as weight and appearance for children younger and younger all the time It s something I am reflective on as an aspiring primary teacher to have esteem building and awareness of the things we say and do and the example we give to children at such an impressionable age, central to my teaching at all times, regardless of subject or student a little nudge towards prevention rather than cure

    So there s a lot happening in this book Ellie has become obsessed with her weight and wants to lose some, Nadine has the opportunity to become a model and Magda has an identity crisis when she finds out local boys think she s easy Oh and suddenly Dan has become very distant with Ellie..I ve read quite a few YA and Adult books about eating disorders and I feel like this book didn t tackle the subject very well view spoiler While Zoe s anorexia and depiction felt very realistic, Ellie s bul So there s a lot happening in this book Ellie has become obsessed with her weight and wants to lose some, Nadine has the opportunity to become a model and Magda has an identity crisis when she finds out local boys think she s easy Oh and suddenly Dan has become very distant with Ellie..I ve read quite a few YA and Adult books about eating disorders and I feel like this book didn t tackle the subject very well view spoiler While Zoe s anorexia and depiction felt very realistic, Ellie s bulimia ED was a bit off She seems to recover from it almost as quickly as it begins, with no professional help or any help whatsoever Yeah, she might have been scared off by seeing Zoe in the psychiatric unit, but she goes from 100 to zero, real quick It felt like the book was trivialising her ED Bare in mind, I have never suffered from an ED but in my experience, I don t think it was well presented in this book hide spoiler.Another okay book in this series I believe I ve only read the first 2 books so we ll see what book 3 brings

    I started reading this book Two weeks ago and I loved it It not only relates tohow I feel but I am pretty sure it related to many of my friends and other girls out there.This book opened my eyes into knowing how important it is to take care of my body.The main characters are three best friends Magda, tall and beautiful, Nadine is gothy and Ellie is just the normal one Ellie made herself think that she was fat so she gottrapped in this hole where all she wanted to do is not eat and lose wei I started reading this book Two weeks ago and I loved it It not only relates tohow I feel but I am pretty sure it related to many of my friends and other girls out there.This book opened my eyes into knowing how important it is to take care of my body.The main characters are three best friends Magda, tall and beautiful, Nadine is gothy and Ellie is just the normal one Ellie made herself think that she was fat so she gottrapped in this hole where all she wanted to do is not eat and lose weight Nadine thetall and skinny one wants to be a model and she is also the one that everyone wantsto look like And Magda just worries that how she looks is giving guys the wrong ideaabout her.Ellie made herself suffer a lot she starved herself and she never was satisfied abouthow she looked She lost a lot of weight and got to her limit but she wasn t satisfied shepushed herself too much.This book is just and example of how teens and women suffer about their physicalappearance All they thought about is to change how they looked but did they learn howto accept themselves for who they were Theme I think the theme is Passion Passion can drive you to do so many things in life either good or bad It just depends on the decisions you make Like Ellie and her friends made terrible decisions because they didnt like how they looked Poeple need to take their passion and make something good out of it not something bad

  9. Evangeline Evangeline says:

    This is honestly such an important book for me and I m so glad I decided to read it again in my somewhat adult life It tackles some really tricky topics but in such a way that it s not so heavy but still gets across the seriousness If I have children one day I will for sure hand these books down to them in their teenage years.

    This young adult novel gives a first person account of a 14 year old girl who develops an eating disorder It gives a very simplistic version of a rapidly escalating and easily resolved case, that may not be particularly relatable to people suffering with an eating disorder It does demonstrate how irrational the thought process can become and is a great book to raise awareness of eating disorders and what signs to look for.I didn t personally relate to any of the characters, but I did empathise This young adult novel gives a first person account of a 14 year old girl who develops an eating disorder It gives a very simplistic version of a rapidly escalating and easily resolved case, that may not be particularly relatable to people suffering with an eating disorder It does demonstrate how irrational the thought process can become and is a great book to raise awareness of eating disorders and what signs to look for.I didn t personally relate to any of the characters, but I did empathise with them and hoped they would be able to work through their issues I listened to the audiobook edition The narrator spoke clearly and at a good pace, but I feel the book would have suited someone with a younger sounding voice as it was written in first person from the view of a 14 year old girl rather than a third person narrator
