it was amazing

This author is an excellent writer. I am looking forward to her next book.
She creates an immediate connection with her struggling self and shows us a woman who is both believable and admirable. I think she describes her difficulty with food and body image in an accurate and sensitive manner. If its difficult for readers to connect to those descriptions perhaps that's because we're not used to learning about what an eating disorder feels like from the inside out. The days of secrecy about eating disorders and their beginnings in trauma are over and Kara is one of the light bearers of truth. The adventure aspect of this book, the grueling hike up Kilimanjaro, had me tuned it at every step. As I said in the beginning of this review, Kara is an excellent writer.
Really good book! I enjoyed every page!]
