I really liked this book. I had read Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia
which I really enjoyed until reading Hornbacher's other memoirs, which made me realize that Wasted was a really self-edited version of Hornbacher's anorexia (what an unreliable narrator she was!).
This was a memoir from the point of view of a parent, and did go into some detail about old/new treatments for anorexia. It's obvious it's not "cured", and while I hope for Kitty's future she is able to beat the disease, I appreciated the fact that the author didn't just finish the novel on a high note--some of these addiction/health memoirs tend to do that, and this was a more realistic ending, knowing that the disease would probably never be "gone".
