If I am honest I bought this book because Caroline Smailes is a local author. I had not bothered to read the blurb, or even to find out what this book was about in any way whatsoever. I literally picked this book because of who the author is....and I'm glad I did.
This story follows Jude who starts out as a 6-7 year old child when her mother commits suicide. Jude is the one who finds her mothers body. The rest of the story revolves around Jude as she grows up, deals with denial, a new step mother, violence at home, feeling unloved and unwanted, rape, and as she grows older, Bullemia. As she has no one to help her and no one to rely on, her illness becomes her method of coping.

A very sad story and quite harrowing in some parts. Very easy to read. Gets right into the mind of a disturbed young individual and how she carries that through to her adult life.
