    oh man back when i was 13 or so these kinds of books were such a big deal they were like the predecessors of that topical writer cyclone jodi picoult where the publishers would take a Big Problem facing teens and just huck a formulaic book at it suicide pregnancy drugs sexual abuse see a teenage problem build a book around it my own personal morbid fascination was with the betrayal of the body and i read 'em all shit i have cancer i am in a comaholy scoliosis dude where's my leg??i even read a book about lupus lupus and when i was diagnosed with epilepsy i thought shit i never read a book to tell me how to deal with this if i had cancer i would just drink a watermelon milkshake and have a positive attitude and i would most likely be fine but then relapse in the next book grr and i have never been anorexic i have a nearly pornographic relationship with food but i loved this book like cakeand it is probably terrible but i did i loved it and read it at least 17 times and i am having a really nostalgic week i was in a part of town yesterday that was my old stomping grounds when i was a young hot college girl and it was getting warmerand everyone looked so young and gorgeous sigh glorious this is not a book review although this is fine book about teen anorexiabulimia this is just me being puppy shuddery in memories of youthyeah i ain't no proust

    i'm pretty sure i read every crappy teen book euivalent of an afterschool special when i was in elementary for some reason this book and The Prettiest Girl in the World stand out among the rest i LOVED these books which is odd considering i was a chubby little preteen with a huge buddah belly gobbling up some fairly graphic accounts of adolescent anorexia what can i sayi was a weird kid

    I had read this back in the 80's and was overcome with the urge to re read it after seeing a post on some book blog about it And to tell you the truth this book sort of scared me during my re read It seems like such an enabling eating disorder book I guess in the 80's talking about stuff like this was still taboo but I just felt this overwhelming icky feeling Lots of emotions Most of them not wonderful Plus the book wrapped up a little too neatly in the end for me Still I guess a brave book for tackling the subject And on a less serious note what a cover It's kind of incredible

    I remember reading this book and it had such a profound effect on me that I still remember it very well to this day I still use the theory from this book that sometimes you can have a false image of yourself and what you look like
