This is a 2008 ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant YA Readers. I absolutely loved this book. It is a raw, honest look into what it's like to live with an eating disorder. I would highly recommend it to both high school boys and girls, especially those with image problems (hey, don't they all have image problems?). Even if the student isn't struggling with the same problems the women in the book are, it's easy to relate with the idea of losing control, feeling like less of a person based on one's appearance, and fighting to fit in. This book is a mirror for everyone who is trying to overcome their personal demons. This book is not appropriate for an entire class to read together, but it would be great to have in a classroom library for kids to pick up. Even if they don't read it, just looking through the pictures and skimming the exerpts will get the student interested.
