book review: How to Be a Reasonably Thin Teenage Girl: Without Starving, Losing Your Friends, or Running Away from Home.

First off, stop right there: yes, this is a real book.
And no, I don't know why you didn't know about it in junior high, but you do now.

This gem of a book touts chapters like, "How'd you get so fat anyway?" "How fat are you?" and "Fifty ways to lose your blubber." It's a winner and if you read it, you'll be a winner, too.

Written by an "ex-fatty" this classic piece of non-fiction really digs in to the battles of dieting/ being really fat. What's even better about this book is that the author offers up ideas on how to maintain a social life while dieting and she encourages the reader to NOT run away from home.

The book was written in 1975 and I haven't run away from home yet, so at least that part is helpful.
