The authors provide important information on eating disorders, alcohol abuse, and too much exercise, stressing the importance of moderation. Acknowledging that change is a gradual process, this support-system-in-a-book encourages young women to set realistic goals and effectively provides the means to do so.

Grade 6 Up-A useful guide to total fitness. Schwager and Schuerger focus on three broad areas for teenage girls who would like to improve their looks and health: developing a positive self-image, choosing nutritious foods, and exercising regularly. Utilizing humorous line drawings, the authors offer many positive suggestions for ways for youngsters to believe in themselves and develop a mental edge to help them attain their goals. When read cover to cover, the text flows smoothly and logically; many readers, however, will also enjoy skimming sections to find the information they need at the moment. The authors make nutrition interesting with suggestions that are easy to implement into busy schedules, emphasizing that teens who deny themselves their favorite foods or binge regularly are bound to fall into disastrous eating patterns. Add these good nutrition habits to regular, fun exercise, and you complete a package of overall health, energy, and glowing looks for girls who are on the go and full of life. Libraries can't go wrong with this book.
