              The Good Body
              By: Eve Ensler
              New York: Villard Press, 2004
             
              Although this isn’t a new book hot off the
              press, it is a wonderful book for adolescent
              girls to read. I really have enjoyed reading it
              and so did my seventeen year old niece.
             
              Our culture teaches us to hate our bodies
              and to criticize every aspect of it. Because
              of this, we are constantly on a diet. And this
              uncertainty can cause anorexia and bulimia,
              two diseases that kill a good many adolescent
              girls every year.
             
              This is why Ensler’s book is like a breath
              of fresh air. One of the themes of Ensler’s
              book is that we should make peace with our
              bodies. As adolescent girls and women we
              have to stop imprisoning ourselves from our
              bodies because of our self-hate for our
              bodies. Instead, we should learn to love our
              bodies just as they are.
             
              If you are self-critical of your body and
              always on a diet, exercising, and trying to
              out-slim the girl next door, this book is for
              you.
