Book Description

1 Jun 2010
Starting Year 11 is bad enough, what with all the exams and end of year party. But Eloise has to deal with the now. The appointment. Sixteen year old Eloise Meehan, who has an eating disorder, begins a journey through therapy in an attempt to come to terms with the unspoken family secrets. But as relationships are built, and subsequently broken, it seems as if there are more questions asked than issues resolved. Will Eloise find the support she crucially needs? And will looking closer to home help her to face her shocking past?

Product Description


Eloise's illness and treatment are handled in a sensitive, yet candid and often surprising way as she negotiates the real life intricacies of...psychiatric treatment. The way in which Morrall conveys this keeps interest high and adds to the emotional pull of the story and the reader's empathy with Eloise.

Morrall ... delivers her message with skilful simplicity. -- Write Away

There is an underlying feeling of hope in this gripping story ... I highly recommend it to those who want to understand [eating disorders] better. -- SherMeree's Musings

5.0 out of 5 stars great book 24 Aug 2012

I have just finished this book - really enjoyed it even though the portrayal of the first two therapists Eloise saw for her treatment is nothing like the real thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shrink 17 April 2011
Even though I am not a young adult,I could still relate to this book.I found Eloise's first two therapists horrible characters,so much so that they represented the sort of therapists that would perpetuate an anorexic's suffering.Aren't therapists supposed to be supportive and helpful?At least at the end,Eloise seemed to have found the right therapist,and her relationship with her father had improved somewhat.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real page turner 12 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was an absolutely amazing book that I really loved, and will probably read again many times. The main character (who's perspective we get) is very believable, and very easy to empathise with. Whilst I would suggest not reading it just before starting therapy (as it might scare you a little) it was not all bleak. This book is definately going in to my top ten all time favourite books!
