bookshelves: read-in-2011, non-fiction

This is such a haunting and heartbreaking tale of suffering. It cracks open the "glamorous" world of celebrity exposing the realities of striving to succeed in a cruel and unrealistic industry. The pain and suffering that de Rossi underwent in seeking the approval of her family, friends and peers is told with raw, honest emotion. I have such awe and respect for the strength of character and the love that saved de Rossi from her disease. This should be required reading in high schools!
