 About the Book 

I hate being fat. I hate being thin. But most of all, I hate that I even care.Becky is a Tweenie growing up in a world where your image is what you are measured by - the same image which is idealized by super-slim fashion models and deft touchesMoreI hate being fat. I hate being thin. But most of all, I hate that I even care.Becky is a Tweenie growing up in a world where your image is what you are measured by - the same image which is idealized by super-slim fashion models and deft touches with photo-editing software. In such an environment, it becomes increasingly impossible for her to hold on to her self-esteem and we follow her diary entries as they describe a slide into the self-destructive world of the anorexic.Despite the intrinsic grimness of the message, Becky maintains her natural bubbliness and its this which is her real salvation. Although she initially rebels against it, she comes to appreciate the way in which the anorexic clinic she is sent to works, and ultimately becomes a valued resident, contributing not just to her own recovery but also to that of other girls.In these pages youll find pathos, emotion, love, confusion, humor and determination. Throughout it all, though, youll see Beckys spark of life which may dim a bit at times but which never goes out. There is darkness here but the book is hugely uplifting and a real must read for any tweenie or early teen in danger of heading down the same path as Becky.
