Publisher Description

In the tradition of Go Ask Alice and Lucy in the Sky, a harrowing account of anorexia and addiction.

She was a good girl from a good family, with everything she could want or need. But below the surface, she felt like she could never be good enough. Like she could never live up to the expectations that surrounded her. Like she couldn’t do anything to make a change.

But there was one thing she could control completely: how much she ate. The less she ate, the better—stronger—she felt.

But it’s a dangerous game, and there is such a thing as going too far…

Her innermost thoughts and feelings are chronicled in the diary she left behind.

Aunt Anna ,

From a Recovering Ana

This book is so poignant. It shows that anorexia is a journey and if you aren’t careful, it will drag you into the depths and you may never come back. So sobering.

BEST BOOK EVER

I mean, I know it's not real (because it says "NONFICTION" on it), so I know it is fiction. But once I started reading, 5 minutes later I'd see what page I was on and I'd be like 50-100 pages from where I started, this book mesmerized me from beginning to end. It is truly an inspiring book! I MOST DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO EEVVEERRYYOONNEE!!

Recovering Ana ,

From an actual viewpoint

As a recovering anorexic with self harming/obsessive compulsive tendencies, I have to say this book isn't very accurate. I'll admit it's an accurate account of maybe the BEGINNING of a developing eating disorder. However, aside from that it's clear that the writer doesn't have much experience with the topic. Otherwise it was a great read.
