So, remember how when you were younger you used to read Sweet Valley High books and feel kind of terrible about yourself because of the constant insistence on how Jessica and Elizabeth were a “perfect size 6”?
Well, I guess Random House felt bad that size 6 teenagers were being denied the profound sense of failure that comes with seeing “perfect” juxtaposed with a size you can’t achieve. So in their re-released versions, the twins are a “perfect size 4.” After all, you’ve got to up the ante sometimes or girls get complacent. We can’t have the size sixes thinking they’ve achieved perfection — you can’t even get a modeling gig at that size, you cow!
Can’t wait to read about how they write down everything they eat and leave themselves notes saying “what will the scale say in the morning?” Gotta combat that there CHILDHOOD OBESITY!
