"How to Be a Reasonably Thin Teenage Girl: Without Starving, Losing Your Friends or Running Away from Home" is an actual book. And it will piss you off ....
If you thought magazines today were brutal to a young girl's body image, check out this real gem discovered by the Awful Library Books blog.
All of the chapters -- but especially "How'd you get so fat anyway?" and "It's called exercise, or get off your duff and do something" -- break our hearts. And you won't believe the illustration associated with the chapter, "Fifty ways to lose your blubber."
