Book Review: Skinniness is Next to Goddessness? Lacey’s Story by Julia Keanini

This is a good YA novel that touches on eating disorders, body image, bullying, cliquishness, and suicide. The way the characters spoke and behaved was spot-on for a teen audience.

I really liked Lacey and felt that I got to know her well enough to sympathize with her struggles. However, I didn’t feel as though I really got to know the secondary characters as well (with the exception of Tuck), as there were so many of them.

The eating disorder storyline (such an important topic) had so much potential. I just wish it had been covered more thoroughly. Instead, several side stories were touched on.

Overall, a good, clean YA novel. I’ll likely read more from this author.

Rating: 3 1/2 STARS
