“I hate being fat. I hate being thin. But most of all, I hate that I even care.”
Follow 12 year old Becky’s diary as she describes how her young life is dominated by the perceived need to follow ridiculous fashions portrayed by under-nourished models with or without subsequent ‘adjustment’ using photo-editing software. Soon enough she is lying to her family and herself about food and her weight as well as indulging in shoplifting at local stores.

A long stay in an anorexia clinic is the turning point for this ultimately uplifting true story. Becky not only learns to recognise the illness for what it is, she also becomes aware of how it has grabbed hold of others. Dying to be Thin is not a ‘happy’ story but it is an inspiring one and would make an excellent ‘wake up’ call to any Tweenie or young teen who is getting caught up in the low self-esteem – diet – anorexia – low self-esteem vicious circle.
