A new children's book coming in October claims to be an inspirational story aimed toward ages 6 and up. While some agree, many more others are outraged.
Maggie Goes on a Diet tells the tale of a 14-year-old girl who grows tired of being called "fatty", loses weight, and becomes the school soccer star. Supporters say it's good to promote healthy eating and exercise, while critics cry that a diet book for children will trigger eating disorders.
