— Ragan O'Malley
"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."
