Newsweek Stephanie Klein Moose


"The memoir, which mixes painful revelations with amusing anecdotes, teems with details, like the sixth-grade Spanish class in which the teacher told students to identify themselves as fat or thin."
— The New York Times

“It combines the classic misery-at-summer-camp story with the lengths we’ll go to get thin.”
— USA Today

“If you have a kid who is overweight, underweight, very tall, very short, this book will make you understand how important it is to accept your child for whatever he or she is.”
— Joan Hamburg- WOR, New York

“Long acclaimed for the sharp and witty insights on her personal blog,, writer Stephanie Klein has now released her second book, Moose, a hilarious and heart-wrenching memoir recounting her adolescent experiences at fat camp.”
— Women’s Day

"Candid . . . inspiring . . . With vivid characterizations, spot-on locale descriptions and sly jokes at her own expense, Klein offers an original and touching take on the all-too-common problem of childhood obesity."
— Kirkus Reviews
