I don't quite know if I hated the book or loved it. It was very well written and it gives a look into what anorexia really can do. I never really understood how messed up it can make you until I read this book. I couldn't eat while reading the book and the way she described food was just astounding. It's hard to remember that she is crazy, and even though it seems like all of her hallucinations are real, I found that I had to keep reminding myself that she was a crazy person and you couldn't rely on anything she thought or saw.

Violence: 3- The girl does have a tendency to cut and harm herself. Also, you watch her Anorexia destroy her, and I believe that adds to the violence.

Lauguage:2- There were a few swear words but not a ton.

Alcohol/Drugs: 3- In her friends death, Alcohol had a big role. She also uses a lot of over the counter drugs to help with her Anorexia.

Sex: 1- I don't believe there was anything really sexual.
