Studies make it clear that children and teenagers who are overweight are likely to face a lifelong struggle with obesity unless they can adopt a successful strategy to improve their health. This book introduces teens to healthier concepts of body image. It's written in a language that teens can relate to--no small feat--and was even test-marketed on teens before it was launched to verify this authenticity. Best of all, the information on weight loss is couched in a larger discussion about body image, feelings of self-worth and other risk factors that can destroy an adolescent's health.
