's review

it was amazing


I choose this book because the subject matter was close to my heart. I grew up with a mother that had an ongoing eating disorder, and unfortunately a few years ago I myself fell down the same rabbit hole. If not for a health scare, and a husband who loves and supports me beyond words, I don't know where I would be right now. This book was beautiful. Painfull. Hard to read. It brought back memories and feelings I would rather not remember, but it is exactly for that reason that I loved this book SO much.


The writing was beautiful. Compassionate. Poignant. Heartbreaking. The story was touching. Devastating. Honest. The characters were complex. Intriguing. Lovable. Realistic. I honestly don't know what else to say about this book. I loved it, and it gets a huge two thumbs up from yours truly.
