Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Leslie Hiller is a bright, attractive, talented teenager who leads a privileged life in New York City. She is also a perfectionist. When Leslie starts to diet, she finds herself becoming obsessed, getting thinner and thinner, until she is forced to realize that her quest for perfection is killing her.

First published in 1981, this groundbreaking novel has been lauded by countless librarians, educators, and teenaged readers. This new edition features an afterword by the author in which she discusses her own struggle with the disease, the difficult road toward recovery, and the lasting effects on her life.

Synopsis:

As 14-year-old Leslie begins to shed the weight she feels makes her imperfect, she finds it increasingly difficult to reach out for the psychological help she knows she needs.

Second star to the right was an amazing book. Leslie's story is a heart-breaking but terrific one. When her eating becomes erratic, she has no one to turn to and her body takes the consequences. It is a book I highly recommend for all young adults, but be prepared to shed a tear or two!
