I got _Real Gorgeous_ as a 17th birthday gift, which is about 5 years later than I wish I'd read it. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It gives you a cute, funny, entertaining look at the media's idea of "beauty", ways to have a more positive body image, why diets don't work, etc. This is advice that could help save many adolescent girls from falling into the typical pattern of low self-esteem, crash dieting, and body hatred. Best of all, it's presented in a light-hearted, positive, friendly fashion that nearly any girl will enjoy. Please do the girls around you a favor and introduce them to this fun, positive, uplifting book (after reading & enjoying it yourself, of course)!
