Self-Image and Eating Disorders

by Rita Smith

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—Impressive presentations of difficult emotional topics. Death covers the grieving process, changes in survivors after a death, and reacting to and risks for suicide. Divorce helps teens cope with the many changes that divorce and remarriage can create. In School Violence, the authors discuss watching for warning signs, campus measures to improve safety and security, and types of conflict and conflict resolution. Self-Image addresses self-esteem and negative body image. Eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating, orthorexia nervosa, and compulsive exercise, along with related health and emotional problems. The books discuss techniques for coping and encourage teens to seek out available resources such as professional help, support groups, or school programs. The books do not use case studies or true-life stories; instead the texts address readers as "you," making them part of the experience. The authors' reassuring tone gives positive and practical advice, assuring readers that the steps take time, effort, and work, but that they can recover and adjust. Captioned color photographs depict a multicultural representation of teens. Excellent resources for young people searching for answers for their own troubles, trying to help someone else, or even adults trying to better understand their children.—June Shimonishi, Torrance Public Library, CA
