Now this is a great kids book. I found it to be an encouraging account of our society. It included detailed descriptions of American women who according to this book are either fat or anorexic. I agree. To support my claim I will tell you that Mississippi's female population is 100% obese while the rest of America is largely anorexic. This book provides that base argument that anorexia in America, with the exception of Mississippi, is a good thing and should be celebrated. Great read I would recommend this book to anyone in Mississippi.
