Arrived and is for the most part informative and well done. However, the section on eating disorders is offensive and lazy. Eating disorders are serious mental illnesses, this book is for young girls who will most probably at some point encounter someone with an eating disorder.If they take this to heart they might actually reduce someone they care about illness to something superficial and shallow. 'Some girls are so worried about their weight they'll try almost anything to change it. They are sure life would be better, or they'd be more popular if they were thinner'. This just perpetuates dangerous stereotypes. Poorly researched on this area and would not recommend the book .
