[2015] Natasha Lisitsky: More Than You Can Chew by Marnelle Tokio

More Than You Can ChewBy: Marnelle Tokio

SynopsisMarty is admitted to the hospital at the end of her senior year of high school. How will she manage not only her eating disorder but, school work, relationships and her job all at once?"Those words were more than I could chew. They still are." (Tokio, 154)

Making Connections is a very valuable strategy when dealing with new texts. This strategy helped me understand this novel by helping me relate my friend's eating disorder to Marty's. I could identify how Marty was truly feeling from start to finish.

Researching can be a very helpful strategy to use at times when approaching a new idea. This strategy helped me with ideas like "Why do anorexic girls not mensturate?" or "What is the cause of eating disorders?". Without researching these ideas I would be lost throughout the novel.

"I told him it wasn't possible now; you had to finish school first, but he said 'Dead girls don't graduate.'" (Tokio, 25)
