This book is (if you couldn't guess by the books name) about a girl named Shannon. She is a Latter-day Saint and about to turn 16. She has everything going for her, the perfect body, perfect gymnest, and always gets good grades. However when her friend says that they should diet before the start of school she agrees. When her friend stops dieting Shannon doesn't. She is soon tumbling down a hill of anorexia.

I actually thought this book was pretty good. I was a little hesitant at first because it does get a little "mormony" it talks about her going to seminary, church, talking to the bishop etc. However, I think it shows that everyone goes through struggles and can be captured by the threat of anorexia without realizing. I think I would pass this book on to help girls out there who try to be too perfect.
