Format: Hardcover
I recieved this book thismorning and have finished it in a day, I have literally laughed and cried. Would recomend this book to anyone who has suffered from any sort of eating disorder, ocd or even depression as it really gives you insight into what a parent must go through. beautifully and honestly written by both mother and daughter, skillfully avoiding too much triggering information such as exact weights so could be read by those in recovery. would recomend it to all parents so they can be equipped to recognise the signs of eating disorders and ocd and realise how differently mother and daughter can experience the same situation. I wish my mum had read this book!

I enjoyed this book as it was written from two different perspectives. Initially you read the mothers perspective, and see the true effects a E.D. have on family. This is interesting as people often think the problem only effects the individual. This is followed by the daughters story, which gives you a the experience through the eyes of the sufferer. I think the importance of having the two stories is that through reading both you probably get a closer representation of the truth.
Would recomend book to anyoe seeking to gain an initial perspective into anorexia. Though it follows the usal paths of most books on the subject, it is quite an easy book to read.

I found this book to be moving and inspiring. Being a sufferer of both OCD and Anorexia I found this book helpful to understand what my own mother felt.
I completely sympathised with Alice and everything she went through I too have experienced.
The book is well written and very honest.

I would recommend this book to anybody, couldnt put it down, a very sad but realistic account of a young girls struggle to make both herself and her family happy. Although I dont have an eating disorder I am addicted to excercise and and can totaly relate to Alice in many of her 'wierd ways'. This book is a real eye-opener and definatley well worth reading.

This book moved me to tears. I had it finished in just a few hours. It is a very hopeful story of a family who has gone through this illness, hit rock bottom and come out the other side. Excellent writing and quite enough detail about Alice's own illness - any more is not necessary and the only reason I could think that anyone wanted to know more details would be because of the morbid curiosity sufferers seem to have with each others' weight, like its a competition (this is mentioned in the book).
There are plenty of areas for learning for both sufferers and parents in this book. I highly recommend it!
