Teenage Waistland, by Lynn Biederman and Lisa Pazer
Pretty bad YA about a group of teens who get lap band surgery in a clinical trial of using the weight loss technique on teens. The characters were well drawn, but too much trauma drama, and the great endings for everone felt very forced.
This is a log of what books I've been reading and movies I've been watching. Comments are welcome!
One explanation seems necessary - the phrase "Life-Changing Fiction" is not in any way an endorsement of those books- in fact, I think those books are Awful, and want that to be clear. "Life-Changing Fiction", as a phrase, has been trademarked, absurdly, by the "Christian fiction" writer Karen Kingsbury, and that is Just Not Right. Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
