more of the uproar

I find it quite sad that kids are stressing about their weight this way. Really? 6 year olds on diets and with body image issues? THAT'S an issue.

Also disturbing to me is the author using a virtual 14 year old to reach an 8 year old (or girls, ages 6-12). Most of them want to grow up to be that popular teen. "Friends or no friends, children?" If Maggie is 14, can't she at least be written for 14 year olds instead of shaping the dreams of girls that just learned to tie their own shoes? SMH.

What are your thoughts on the book or its concept?
