"More than You Can Chew" has been called a "One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest" for young adults.
Marty Black has retreated from a difficult family situation into the area she can best control, her own appetites. She may not be able to control her parents behavior, but she can decide what she will and will not eat. Eventually, she stops eating altogether. Marty is close to death when she finally asks for help and finds herself in a psychiatric institution. But recognizing her need for help is only the first tenuous step on a long road to recovery.
Marty s ability to find a way to live, despite the powerful lure of anorexia, is the core of this fine, insightful novel.
Marnelle Tokio s semi autobiographical story will resonate with every teenager who faces issues of family, body image, and self-confidence."
