A beautiful tragedy
on 3 June 2014
I want to start off by saying this is probably so far the best book on Anorexia I've ever read (albeit I haven't read many yet) it is a very touching, powerful and thought provoking story of a young girl suffering in the clutches of a terrible illness.
This is a must read book for all teens and young adult men and women as Anorexia is a very serious illness and more should be done to make people aware of it.
The book progresses rather slowly but in a good way, it unfolds and is very realistic in those senses, it deals with all kinds of traumatic things but not in such a graphic way and comes to a good ending. It is one of those books that might stick with you for a long time after reading. It is written in the sense of being horribly graphic, upsetting and even frightening, however, the way it is written softens it enough to not disturb people, especially younger ones.
I'm 20 reading this and I didn't think it was too young, it is suitable for teens and adults, although some parents may want to give it a check through before letting younger ones read it.
I really enjoyed this book and hope that is does just that, brings hope to people suffering from or that know someone suffering from the illness. It has amazing insight and really opens your eyes to the tragic world of Anorexia.
