Very good book

I picked this up because I have two daughters who are about to go to a new school and they're struggling with "who they'll be" at the new school. My oldest (12h is also going through the he "I'm so fat" stage even though she's very thin for her age and height. I just wanted to see what this book was all about so I read it and enjoyed it though don't think I'd let my kids read it (don't want to give them any ideas about how to become bulimic or anorexic though the store was so much more than that which really helped to balance out the whole story very nicely.
