Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short, but breath taking At first the book seemed to be too short to have any decent plot or climax to be read. But after reading the first two chapters I was hooked. The story follows a young girl and how she is to deal with being pretty and perfect. Which most teens these days try to pursuit. At first it sounds stereotypical, but the story had enough depth that you could picture as the story went on. From having parent problems to love life this story says all. All I wish was that it was a lot more longer.

About the Author

At fifteen, AYA TSINTZIRAS'' play, Rainfall, won an Honourable Mention in the Tarragon Theatre''s Under 20 Playwright Competition. Now completing her degree in Political Science and Media Studies at the University of Toronto, Aya has rewritten the play into this novel. Her interest in anorexia developed during her teenage years after a classmate died due to complications of this eating disorder. Deeply affected by this tragedy, Aya wants young adults to be more aware of the consequences of what she was told then was a "mysterious illness."

Editorial Reviews

Rated G - Good, even great at times, generally useful! The genius in this book lies in its ability to communicate to the reader the depth of Raine''s denial without resorting to overt statement...for a school age-reader, the consequent insight should have more impact than a more dramatic presentation.

Appropriate for ages: 13 - adult
