Hunger by Jackie Kessler
Once again, I really was excited for the premise of this book, and I couldn't wait to read it. I also love the cover, but I really though this book did not completely live up to its potential. I don't think there was enough lead up for Lisa and her situation. I also think that the characters were kind of simple. The end did get pretty awesome though, and the dedication after the story, the fact that Lisa was sort of a based on a real person that the author knew at one point in time, that was amazingly touching.
I do think that many teen girls will be able to relate to Lisa. I can really see where she is coming from with her eating disorder, and I can even see part of her issues reflected in my normal thinking. So, I can see how this book would be good for girls with anorexia and other eating disorders.
