Gr 7 UpFrissell defines and discusses anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating and expounds upon the problems and causes. The importance of body image, thinking patterns, and healthy or unhealthy attitudes and practices toward weight are all dealt with. Central to the presentation is the premise that attitudes and self-esteem are the operative tools in dealing with weight control, but their distortion may lead to harmful consequences. Narratives by teens who have dealt with eating disorders are included. However, each story is broken into separate parts by chapter, making it difficult to retain the continuity of the individual voices. Quizzes to help readers determine their own susceptibilities appear in each chapter. The jagged computer-generated borders and boxes that appear throughout are sometimes distracting. Elizabeth Sirimarco's Eating Disorders (Marshall Cavendish, 1993), Don Nardo's Eating Disorders (Lucent, 1992), and Ben Sonder's Eating Disorders (Watts, 1993) present similar information.Lois McCulley, Wichita Falls High School, TX
