Synopsis

My Big Fat Secret How Jenna Takes Control of Her Emotions and Eating by Lynn R. Schechter

The book is written in a journal format that helps readers relate to the struggles and feelings of the main character. It provides information about different strategies that young people can use to cope with their feelings and stress instead of emotional eating; deals with the real-life issues that overweight children face (their inner struggles as well as difficulties with peers and others); and, includes tips for parents and professionals. The book is written by a practicing school counselor who could not find a suitable book for her clients.
