i found the charater Blythe very easy to realate to as i too have an eating disorder and am still battling with it, this book pin pointed all my emotions, emotions i never even knew i felt until i read this book!! however, i did find that it reffered to religon a lot through out the book even though she was a christian i think that it was a bit too much in the book but that is the only bad thing i can about it!! it was a really great book and i would give it 5 stars yet i think all the references to god made it lose out on 1 star! but a great read none the less!!

it spins and looks pretty, and you keep on watching ... but there's no climax, there's no bang, there's no spark.

The book simplifies eating disorders to a disgusting point. Blythe decides to lose weight and bang, suddenly she's 95lbs! There is not a single complaint of hunger, of pain, of hair loss, of dizziness, of shaking, of being permanently cold, of not being able to concentrate. No, Blythe is a normal teenager, she's just shockingly thin. Then she suddenly blacks out a little and gets terrified, though realistically far worse things would have happened by now, and she asks her god to help her. Then she faints, and really freaks out, then her god some how manages to touch her and bang, she's better.

Disappointing. For a more accurate, realistic look on eating disorders, read Wasted by Marya Hornbacher. Nothing will ever top it.

Format: Paperback
Although the book is fictional, it is based on the wuthor's real-life experiences. This makes it more realistic than quite a lot of fictional books. The story is written in the style of a diary, from the point of view of Blythe. At the outset, she is 13, but gradually gets older as the book progresses. It is set in America. I don't want to give too much away about the plot, but Blythe's problems begin when she starts to compete with Laurie, another girl in her year who has anorexia. It spirals from there. I would recommend this book to both teenagers and adults as it's very good for an afternoon's reading. It's not too heavy, either.

A view from the inside. 3 Aug. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Diary of an Anorexic Girl" by Morgan Menzie is a novel, but it is based on the author's own life and the journal she kept as she struggled and finally succeeded in beating the addiction. I know the intended audience is young adults, but I think adults will gain a lot of understanding from hearing what anorexia is like from someone who has it. The best part of the story is the strength that Blythe draws from her faith in God and how that faith ultimately leads to her triumph.
If you are anorexic, or have a family member or friend who is, or simply want to know more about what it is like to have this disorder, this book can open your eyes.

Amazing Insight 7 Aug. 2003
By "jenniferravril" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book provided amazing insight into the life of a girl struggling with an eating disorder. It not only allows the reader to gain understanding of the complicated issues that are part of an eating disorder, but also portrays the other aspects of the girl's life and how they are affected.
What makes this book truly enjoyable to read, however, is the witty style and the clever prose with which is was written. The young girl's comically melodramatic personality and wisdom beyond her years shine's through in each journal entry.
Through the pages, Morgan Menzie materializes and leads the reader through a tearful,yet laughter-filled journey of her adolescence. This book is definitely one of those books where the reader sits down and reads until she is finished, and even then is somewhat saddened to have reached the last page.

As honest as STICK FIGURE: A DIARY OF MY FORMER SELF 20 Mar. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After reading Lori Gottlieb's STICK FIGURE: A DIARY OF MY FORMER SELF, I didn't think I'd find another collection of diaries that spoke about anorexia with such honesty and compassion. I've struggled with anorexia, and both books (STICK FIGURE and this one) have been by my bedside because I find it helpful and comforting to read parts of them over and over. I strongly recommend both books for not just anorexics, but for families and friends who truly want to understand the experience and what they can do to help.

Wonderful book 12 Jun. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I would disagree wholeheartedly with the reviewer who said that they were hoping for a "traumatic account." This is an honest, moving account that still manages to be humorous at points. No one wants to read a depressing, whiny book like the previous reviewer seemed to want. If you want a thoughtful book that will make you both laugh and cry, this is it. Highly recommended for those who have friends or family battling eating disorders.
