This book is great for teenagers. I really liked it because it reminded me exactly of myself and my two best friends. This is a great book because it really delves into the dilemas that teenagers face these days. It is based on one girl called Ella who is having trouble with her weight...you read about her struggling bulimia. This book will raise awareness of weight issues with teens.
