A Disappointing read., 14 April 2006
This book tells the story of a young girl who faced with bullying at school and difficulties at home turns to dieting as a means of coping which quickly spirals into anorexia. Whilst the book gave a good insight into the thinking processes which accompany an eating disorder I felt it did very little to highlight the dangers. By the end of the book she was recovered which to young girls (at whom this book is aimed) could give the impression that anorexia is something that you can dabble with and stop at any time. This is a dangerous message as the reality is that eating disorders can last years and can destroy the suffers health and life.
