This was an amazing take on body image! I loved how it wasn't "Go on a diet, NO junk food" and it wasn't "Exercise, exercise, EXERCISE!", it was a well rounded view on a healthy lifestyle, with a healthy relationship, healthy eating and exercise, and healthy takes on things like stress. It's also a great book to show that teens WILL be seen as more then that funny gal when they're ready, and that being thin won't change that. I loved how Hayley was such a different person after Italy, I couldn't put it down because it was a such a great read, with such great characters and role models, plus with great views on being healthy, even if you're not a blonde, size 2 supermodel.
