Weight: A Teenage Concern

Weight: A Teenage Concern

by Elaine Landau

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-- A lively examination of a variety of topics related to weight control from the perspective of teenagers. Taking a look at societal perceptions of obesity, causes, various weight loss methods--including some unusual ones such as liposuction and computer-assisted dieting--and concluding with information about anorexia nervosa and bulimia, Landau provides information and does some ``positive thinking'' talk about self-acceptance that teens frequently need to hear. More effective than Arnold's Too Fat? Too Thin? (Morrow, 1984) and more readable at a lower reading/interest level than the Silversteins' So You Think You're Fat? (HarperCollins, 1991), the book will give guidance and encouragement. Included is a list of groups concerned with the weight issue. --Lois McCulley, Wichita Falls High School, TX
