Sue Scheff: Thin Club by Kim Tennant

After Blogging about Teen Eating Disorders I was flooded with emails from many people that are advocates, parents, authors etc… that work towards bring an awareness to the serious concern of eating disorders.

Kim Tennant has written a children’s book to help young girls – if you suspect your daughter is struggling, please take a moment to review her book – The Thin Club.


Mandy has the perfect life and is the perfect student; now she wants to have the perfect body and be beautiful, thin and graceful like the models and movie stars she sees in magazines and on television.

One day, when her friends tell her she looks fat in a new dress, she decides to diet just like everyone else. What Mandy doesn’t know is her extreme dieting lands her into all sorts of trouble.

Age level: 10 – 12 year olds, but parents and grandparents will also enjoy this book!
