Overview

Self-conscious about her smallness, Lydia develops an obsession with size. She begins keeping a journal—her Bigger Book, collecting information about getting bigger and stronger. As Lydia enters high school, she loses the journal, but not her anxiety about size and survival. Then Michelle comes into her life, fresh from an eating disorder clinic, still very ill with anorexia. Lydia and Michelle become true friends and share secrets and fears. When Lydia's old Bigger Book resurfaces, both girls find healing inspiration between its yellowed pages.

Iliked this book because it was very interesting in a unique way , the librarian requested it to me and i loved it. Its about to girls with completely different problems and find strenth off eachother. I did not like the ending because it was really sad, they got slit up and but even thought these girls were together for only 6 months they changed their whole lifes along with their out looks on life.
