A truly frightening story.

One day at dance class, Francesca's dance teacher tells her she needs to drop just a few pounds from her already tiny body. And that night, Kessa, Francesca's alterego, is born. Kessa stops eating and begins losing too much weight. Her parents take her to the doctor and try therapy. But Kessa still won't eat. Her obsession begins turning into to an actual fear. She drops to 78 pounds. Her chances of living are looking, well, slim.

253 pages. 1 book.

I recommend this to people interested in the minds of patients with anorexia nervosa.
