The Heart is not a Size
Kephart, Beth. The Heart is not a Size. New York: HarperTeen, 2010.
Georgia and Riley have been best friends forever. They do everything together, including taking a summer trip to Mexico to help a rural village get back on its feet. Georgia has been suspecting that Riley has an eating disorder, but not until they are in Mexico does she confront her about her problem. And Riley's choice to ignore her problem could have devastating consequences for all involved.
That paragraph made this book sound very intense. It's not. There's barely a plot and no drama involved. I kept waiting for the one big, exciting thing to happen but it never did. There was so much potential in this story, but sadly it fell flat. Don't bother with this one, folks.
