Read in September, 2008

I empathised a lot with this character and enjoyed the character's tone in this novel. A good read for any girl struggling with body image issues. I did feel that the mother was too much of a stereotype, and I seriously can't belive that the father could be so insensitive as to make comments about scantily clad women on TV in front of his overweight daughter... One thing that has been irritating me about teen books is that the characters tend to be middle-upper class. I guess adding poverty as an issue would be one too many things for the writer to have to deal with??
