Amy and 115 other people liked Petra X's review of Letting Ana Go:
Letting Ana Go by Anonymous
"Anorexia is the medium that carries the message in this book. It's not what kills the teenage diary writer, although she does die from it.

This book is built from cliches. One builds on another. Perhaps cliches are new and fresh to teenagers but t..." Read more of this review »

Dietland by Sarai Walker
“People had always insulted me by calling me fat, but they couldn’t hurt me that way, not anymore. I was fat, and if I no longer saw it as a bad thing, then the weapon they had used against me lost its power.”
Sarai Walker
Amy liked a quote
Dietland by Sarai Walker
“I looked at my body, the body that had kept me alive for nearly 30 years, without any serious health problems, the body that had taken me where I needed to go and protected me. I had never appreciated or loved the body that had done so much for me. I had thought of it as my enemy, as nothing more than a shell that enclosed my real self, but it wasn’t a shell. The body was me.”

Laurie Halse Anderson
“The light beyond my eyes flashflashflashes with a hundred futures for me. Doctor. Ship's captain. Forest ranger. Librarian. Beloved of that man or that women or those children or those people who voted for me or who painted my picture. Poet. Acrobat. Engineer. Friend. Guardian. Avenging whirlwind. A million futures--not all pretty, not all long, but all of them mine. I do have a choice" - p. 271”
Laurie Halse Anderson, Wintergirls

Marya Hornbacher
“Never, never underestimate the power of desire. If you want to live badly enough, you can live. The great question, at least for me, was: How do I decide I want to live?”
Marya Hornbacher, Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia

Marya Hornbacher
“And yet you are all that you have, so you must be enough. There is no other way.”
Marya Hornbacher, Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia

Marya Hornbacher
“You never come back, not all the way. Always there is an odd distance between you and the people you love and the people you meet, a barrier thin as the glass of a mirror, you never come all the way out of the mirror; you stand, for the rest of your life, with one foot in this world and no one in another, where everything is upside down and backward and sad.”
Marya Hornbacher, Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia

Ned Vizzini
“I don't know how I can be so ambitious and so lazy at the same time.”
Ned Vizzini, It's Kind of a Funny Story
