Format: Kindle Edition
Going off tangent to begin, I have to say Trish captures the way in which different socio-economic classes use different methods of control to cope with the stresses of the life they lead. Having worked within a school environment for the past 5 years, in two very different socio-economic areas I have witnessed the truth behind the portrayal first hand. I know this is a generalisation, but that doesn’t prevent it from being the truth for the majority; poorer areas and families tend to resort to alcohol/drugs in order to cope/escape while more affluent areas have issues with eating disorders and OCD/anxiety. I have been pondering this over the past weekend looking for an explanation as to why this should be, considering the fact poorer areas have less money to spend on things like drink and drugs it makes very little sense. I do think that poorer families have a greater appreciation of food, maybe having experienced hunger personally or having less abundance of nutrients available. While, more affluent families place greater pressure on their children to achieve and perform to higher standards. It really is something to think about.

Arian (Ari) falls into the affluent category, complete with ridiculous expectations from her parents, constant criticism wearing her already low self-esteem to oblivion. The pressure Ari is subjected to can be viewed as a huge weight quite literally crushing her. The pressure manifest in OCD and anxiety disorder, leading to an eating disorder. Ari views her eating disorder as a way of having some form of control over her life.

My heart went out to Ari, the only love she has known has been conditional leaving her in constant fear of its withdrawal.
