More Than You Can Chew is about an anorexic girl named Marty. She gets put in a rehab center where she feels like she doesn't belong. Marty lost all of her friends because of her disease. She never really had any family that cared for her. Marty would take her anger out on everyone in the hospital, but soon realizes anger won't get her any closer to leaving rehab. Lily is an eight year old anorexic girl that Marty becomes close with during rehab. She is very shy, and the only person that she will talk to is Marty. She ends up dying at the end of the book because of her disease. Marty's mom is a former alcoholic that cared more about drinking than her own daughter. She eventually sobered up and began to care about Marty. Marty's father left her when she was little. He would occasionally call her to check up on her. He visited her once while she was in rehab. "That was the day dad said no, mom stopped drinking, and I stopped eating." This passage represented the beginning of Marty's anorexia. Marty was mad at her mom for being drunk all the time. So she asked her dad if she could live with him and he said no. This led to her not wanting to eat anymore. I agree with the book revolving around rehab and changing you into a better person. There are no serious errors in the book. There are no new and unusual ideas.

I personally think this book is hilarious. Marty is really fun to listen to and she makes everything funny. Almost all the reviews I've read says More than you can Chew is depressing, but don't let them drag you down. Definitely try this book.
