Reviews

"Written in a natural, friendly voice, the text clearly intends to counteract the harmful ideas about body image that often target teenagers and to offer a healthy lifestyle alternative to weight loss surgeries and medications. During a time when teenagers receive multiple messages from society, this is a good book to have on hand."--Bethany Fort "Booklist "
"[Holcombe] cheers her readers on, encourages them, and reminds them that they are capable of taking charge of their lives."--Jane Murphy, VOYA
"Holcombe is a cheerleader for adopting a healthy lifestyle-there are no quick fixes here....Recommended for teens looking for a get-your-life-in-gear pep talk followed by good solid advice."--Ragan O'Malley "School Library Journal "
