bookshelves: non-fiction, parenting, tween, teen
Read in January, 2009

Similar to the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" format, this book is full of short stories, essays and poems that all relate to body image. Like the "Chicken Soup" books, I think you either love this style and find bits and pieces that speak to you, or you hate it and think it's smarmy and contrived. I bounce back and forth, and have read a few "Chicken Soup" books, and probably would have really gotten into this as a tween. I think there are a lot of grown-ups who could stand to read this book that covers topics like realizing you are in charge of your own happiness.
The book is definitely marketed for girls - pinks and oranges, flowers and hearts - but the concepts behind many of the essays are universal. Every adolescent has had problems that are addressed in this book, but the format and style may be a turnoff. May be a good book for parents of children, tweens and teens to read.
