Readers: This isn’t my normal genre for this blog, however, I felt this subject matter so very important to so many young women today. When I read this book, I was really impressed with the authors characterization and plot development and how she touched on this very serious problem of dieting and eating disorders that plague so many young women and now men today. Enjoy!

About the Author
*Five Star Review* -Janet Greaves (choirlady76)
Skinny is about a young teen in her freshman year of high school. She’s on the dance team, she’s striving for top grades and keeping up with assignments and tough course work. She’s popular and on the dance team and striving for the goal of team captain and she’s in love with star athlete Beau who at times seems distant. She begins to diet like many young women and eventually eating becomes the one thing that she can control.
As her life begins to spiral out of control, will she lose control of herself? And who in the end has control, her or the eating disorder?
This is an awesome book for all teens, especially those suffering from self-image issues and eating disorders.
Author Laura Smith’s characterization was awesome and the stories plot flows beautifully. She try captures the everyday angst and joys of teen-life and gives the reader a glimpse of the struggles of eating disorders and how easily anyone can slip into one. I highly recommend this book!
