My Thoughts: It took me a little bit to get into this one, but once I did, it was hard to stop thinking about it. I enjoyed it - I liked how there was humor in this very serious plot line. The teens’ lives deal with significant issues which changed their eating habits. They dig down to the deeper roots of their issues and in some cases begin the healing process. It’s a satisfying emotional read that will linger will you after the pages have closed.
