This review is from: The Cupcake Queen Bites Back: My Journey through recovery from an eating disorder (Paperback)
This little book with it's witty title is deceptively simple. This combination of verse and short reflections written during Jackie Tanner's recovery from an eating disorder is a gem.
This is no slick literary masterpiece - it is far more than that. It is a true, honest to goodness, sometimes humorous, definitely from the heart, no holds barred, personal sharing of a difficult life experience.
This book offers two opportunities. One is to begin to understand this most incomprehensible of conditions, the other is to offer inspiration to others in the same struggle. Share this journey and you can begin to believe that if she can do it so can you.
Jackie is a woman of passionate intensity and to get to know her, to travel with her to recovery, and share her joy at the reclamation of her life is a privilege.
Please give this brave book to anyone for whom, in the words of one of the poems, "the ducks fly backwards" and help them learn to fly forwards again.
