From School Library Journal
Grade 7 Up–Two useful and timely additions. Gay discusses what obesity is, what causes it, and the health risks associated with it. This information lays a solid foundation on which to tackle the topic of unhealthy weight-loss strategies. Different types of eating disorders and unhealthy diets are discussed, showing teens the dangers of such drastic methods. The pros and cons of weight-loss surgery are described. The author does not focus just on the negative aspects of the obesity, but also offers suggestions on how to live a healthier lifestyle and to decrease one's chances of gaining weight. Rebman defines addiction and the risky behaviors that often go hand-in-hand with it. She looks at drugs, alcohol, inhalants, smoking, eating disorders, self-mutilation, and even the Internet, which many teens might not consider risky. Both books are clearly written, with excellent factual information and full-color photos. Reputable Web sites as well as addresses for related organizations are included.–Kristen M. Todd, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY
