Good Girls Don't Get Fat

How Weight Obsession Is Messing Up Our Girls and How We Can Help Them Thrive Despite It Rating:

Based on Dr. Robyn Silverman's groundbreaking research at Tufts University, and filled with searingly honest young voices, Good Girls Don't Get Fat decodes the ripple effects of actions that damage our girls -- and provides tools to help stop them; shines light on the positive influence of women who embrace body types of any size, and explains how to model the right behavior; and shows how girls, whatever their size, can own their strengths, trust their power and accomplish amazing things.

"Silverman outlines the causes behind an unhealthy body image and what parents can do to combat it, interspersing her advice with quizzes and stories from teens she's interviewed. Focusing mainly on mothers and daughters, Silverman also explores ways that fathers can reinforce a positive body image. Although the book contains plenty of sound advice, the breezy messages can border on hokey, with suggestions to declare one's home a "Fat Talk Free Zone" or to limit girls to two minutes of "grumbling and groaning" about imperfections. The author concludes with a helpful guide to resources promoting a healthy body image and self esteem, and a list of shops that carry plus-sized clothing." -- Publishers Weekly
