“One of the most up to date, relevant, and honest accounts of one family’s battle with the life threatening challenges of anorexia. Brown has masterfully woven science, history, and heart throughout this compelling and tender story.”
—Lynn S. Grefe, Chief Executive Officer, National Eating Disorders Association

“As a woman who once knew the grip of a life-controlling eating disorder, I held my breath reading Harriet Brown’s story. As a mother of daughters, I wept for her. Then cheered.”
—Joyce Maynard, author of Labor Day

This was an excellent memoir. Not only was it well written, but it was insightful and deep. The author made so many valuable connections throughout her book, therefore giving the reader a true sense of what living with anorexia would be like. This is a superb book for anyone to read, but more specifically for teenagers who wish to better understand the illness, and families who are or have struggled with anorexia in the past.
