5.0 out of 5 stars This book could save lives, 26 Sep 2012

This review is from: A New Name (Paperback)
I read this book in one night. Some of it was quite harrowing, but I guess that's the consequence of being so honest. What I loved about it, though, was that it gave me hope. It's no Disney film 'Happy Ever After' ending but you do get the feeling that in some way she's come out the other side with more hope than she went in with; that not only can it be OK, but it can somehow be better. The Emma that got ill seems to be owned by anorexia, like a slave to it. You really believe that, though scarred, the Emma at the end of the book is free. I'd recommend this hugely to those suffering with eating disorders. Some books on the subject take you into the pit of despair and you feel like you've been left there. This one takes you there and then leads you out. I'm sorry that the author went through what she did. But I'm grateful for her being a sufferer with such a gift for writing. This book could save lives.
