Dear Opl by Shelley Sackier
This is a cute story about 13 year old Opal, who eats too much sweets while mourning her father who passed away two years ago. When she is told that she is pre-diabetic and will have to change her diet, she is forced to change her eating habits. Inspired by her mother's suggestion to start a blog, Opal becomes "Dear Opl", and blogs about her experiences in going to Yoga classes and changing her diet with the help of her G-pa and a British foodie who has a blog and cook books about healthy eating. Her blog is funny and popular and Opal makes friends and helps several people and loses some weight along the way. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
