This is a simple story told through email entries between Jenna and several other people in her life - friends and family. Through the correspondence we learn of Jenna's struggle with obesity and how she gets the help she needs to overcome it. I think this book would be most appealing to ages 10-12 and it doesn't get bogged down with details. Good for those who need to be more understanding of those with weight problems as well as those with weight problems, themselves.
Definitely didactic but I believe it has its place on the school counselor shelf. Girls struggling with their weight that want to change might just find some of the answers they are needing if they want to change. It is pretty boring even if the author tried to make it more interesting through the use of emails.
This could appeal to some kids struggling with their weight, especially since it is written as a series of emails. It reads quickly and is pretty realistic. Both Jenna's parents and the school counselor are portrayed as supportive.
