did not like it
bookshelves: 2009-reads
Read in November, 2009

I got this book for free on my Kindle, and all I can say is to stay away from it.

It's basically about a high school girl who develops an eating disorder because she is "way too busy in high school" and has boy problems. The stress leads to her (sort of) developing an eating disorder and fainting at dance practice.

Her dance instructor forces her to go to a doctor, and she is magically cured of her eating disorder by talking to God and having her parents watch what she ate. Yeah, lame.

Simona-- I'm kind of intense Hmm.
That IS kind of a lame way to be cured.
"Oh Em Gee, my parents are sorta watching what I eat and I pray to God every day, so now I'm cured of a mental illness!"
*face palm*

Not bashing God here, kay? I'm just sayin', it's not like you pray and then BAM you get what you want. It doesn't really work that way.
