SRP 2012 REVIEW: It was a pretty good book, but the only thing that kept me going was the chapter titles. I would not advise you to read this book because it is pretty dull.

SRP 2010 REVIEWS (2): #1) Great book about self image. It out be a great YA lit book for a mother & daughter to read together and discuss! #2) I really liked this book! At first, I thought it would be all about Rosemary being upset about her life and her trying to lose weight. To my surprise, it was funny and had lots of charm! Its about Rosemary, fighting back at all the bad things in her life, does she win? Well you'll have to read the book to find out!
