Praise
"While the hazard of setting unrealistic standards of beauty is a familiar theme in teen novels, the author lays out the issues with unusual clarity, sharp insight, and cutting irony. The book's aim is not high culture but high school culture, and it scores for pure entertainment value."
"Less a problem novel than walk-a-mile-in-their-shoes story, this may resonate with teens of many sizes."
From the Publisher
