My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This book was read by one of my students in my Psychology of Women class. She brought it for me to read and I was excited to read it.
To say I was disappointed with this book would be generous. I thought this was an extreme trivialization of anorexia and the body image distortions that accompany it.
The story is told from the diary of the author as an 11 year old girl. However, I really don't believe that these are her actual diaries - it's a bit too neat to be completely authentic. Even if the diaries are real, for this book to be effective the author needed to discuss some of the emotional pain that accompanies anorexia and spend some time discussing her experiences with treatment and re-integration into the community and her family.
I would personally not recommend this book to anyone.
