As a Christian, Emily knows "inner beauty" is more important than physical appearances, but frankly she is starting to hate herself. Leah hatches a plan to give Emily a long-term makeover and encourages her to start a reasonable exercise and diet plan. It's slow-going and frustrating. As school comes to an end, Leah's aunt announces her plans to send Leah to send to a two-week modeling school in Chicago, but her father will not allow her to go unless Emily agrees to go with her. Two days before the school begins, Emily is dismayed to see she's lost only three pounds.
The modeling school isn't as horrible as Emily expects, mostly because the skinny chicks seem to accept her, and they are willing to share their diet secrets, which are far more extreme than Leah's. But they are effective! Energized by the speedy results, Emily soon finds herself on a weight-loss slide she can't seem to stop.
Later that summer, the friends work as church-camp counselors for a bunch of mean girls, and Emily's physical health begins to decline. Leah has a cosmetic surgery that goes terribly awry. Together they must find their way back to a godly understanding of what it means to be truly beautiful.

xiaohangd5 Stars Out Of 5For preteen girlsOctober 3, 2013xiaohangdQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I read this book a few years ago, and I remember that I stayed up every night to read, and reread the chapters. I believe that every girl in their preteen years has a battle with self-esteem, accepting the way their bodies were created, and wanting to be "skinny" to be "pretty". This book gave me reassurance that starving to be thin had severe consequences, no matter how "in control" you feel.
Definitely suitable for girls as they transition into their early teenage years.
