Description and summary of main points

Emily has put on extra weight in the past year while her best friend, Leah, has lost some. Now Leah is on her way to literally being America’s Next Top Model. Emily is getting very self-conscience and to make things worse, her dad is endlessly commenting her weight problem.

When Emily tries to lose the weight by simply dieting, she can’t get it to work fast enough. While she’s struggling to put off her weight, she’s watching her best friend slip into a world of glamour and beauty; Emily wants that for herself.


So she goes to extreme and drastic measures, taking her down a horrible path that could ruin or even possibly end her life.

Your final review

I think this is a really good book, especially for teenage girls with eating disorders. It shows you that your looks aren’t the only thing that matters; what’s on the inside is what counts the most. It sends you the message that if you have God on your side, you can overcome any obstacles. But not only do you have to believe in God, you have to believe in yourself.
