Sue Scheff - Tween - Teen Body Image - The Thin Club by Kim Tennant

Thin Club - What a great book for tweens and parents alike to read and discuss. I loved the book and finished it in a short time.

Mandy has the perfect life and is the perfect student; now she wants to have the perfect body and be beautiful, thin and graceful like the models and movie stars she sees in magazines and on television.

One day, when her friends tell her she looks fat in a new dress, she decides to diet just like everyone else. What Mandy doesn't know is her extreme dieting lands her into all sorts of trouble.
