    Leah Mandeville is a junior in high school. She's on the basketball team and wants to go onto college to play for UCLA. Leah's mother, Veronica, is a model and she wants her daughter to follow in her footsteps. Modeling isn't Leah's thing and even if it was, she doesn't have the slim frame necessary to make it in the business. But then there's Jay, Leah's next door neighbor and best friend for three years. Leah has feelings for him, but he likes someone else; one of her skinny friend's. Will Leah get his attention if she loses weight?I liked Leah, but I did not like the way she spoke to Victoria. Even if she was fed up with Victoria caring so much about appearances, this woman was still her mother. She never went too far with her disrespect, though. She knew when to hold her tongue.I did feel for Leah, wanting to fit in so badly. When she began to lose the weight I was glad she felt better about herself, but then she went to the extreme, losing way more weight than she should have. As the numbers on the scale went lower and lower, it was like she was living in a dream world. While everyone around her could clearly see what she was doing to herself, she actually thought she was becoming more attractive when what she was doing was risking her life. And when she ignored the signs her body sent to let her know something was wrong, that she was abusing her body, I was so sad for her.I liked Jay, who was a true friend to Leah. And Shazan, Leah's friend since the second grade, was a good girl, but, unfortunately, she had her own `weight issues'. It would have been great if she could have seen her problem as clearly she could see Leah's.Nibbles of food or days of starvation, strenuous workouts, diet pills, and purging led to excessive weight loss for Leah. She became dangerously thin way too fast and no matter how much friends and family pointed that out, she ignored their concerns. Anorexia and Bulimia are the eating disorders Sarkar addresses in Shrink to Fit, and she did a very good job writing this story. The psychological illnesses that can be found in those suffering from eating disorders is so clear, and as for the physical effects, when Leah dropped pounds, I was able to get a visual of the changes in her body and it was not pretty. While the story was entertaining to a certain degree, it is most importantly a cautionary tale. The story warns against the danger of depriving oneself of the proper nourishment necessary to stay healthy... and alive. Shrink To Fit is a must read.Parents: There is profanity, but it's not pervasive. There was one word in particular, though, that I grew very tired of reading.
