With all the reviews of this book that are out there, I'll only say this: Don't limit your reading to what you see as "appropriate" for grownups. Some of the most moving and well-written fiction being written today is being written for teens and young adults. This book is no exception. But I'm a big John Green fan, so perhaps you should read it for yourself....hint hint hint.
“The relationship women in Western culture have with food is complicated and often fraught with strange rituals and beliefs, unhealthy behavior, guilt, and shame. From their friendship as roommates at an Ivy League college, each woman's life is detailed through their relationships with food and with other people at defining points in their lives. Their struggles and emotions feel very real and are often all too familiar.” Samantha Gordon, The Library Shop, San Diego, CA
