I didn't particularly care for this memoir. It was written dully and since I had heard so much about Crystal Renn's story through magazine interviews that I didn't learn anything new. However, it you're new to how fat is demonized in this country even when studies prove it isn't as bad as the "Media" makes it out to be, you'll gleam a lot of info from this book. I'd gift this book to any teenage or preteen girl who feels like she has an imperfect body. Crystal Renn writes directly to that audience.
