This was an AMAZING book. I was so happy to read a story about someone overcoming a mental illness that did not involve a romantic interest as a solution. While there is some romance, it’s in the flashbacks and seems to contribute to the protagonist’s problems.
This book also did a great job of depicting an eating disorder as well as the variety of symptoms and behaviors that exist under the umbrella of an eating disorder diagnosis.
I would highly recommend this novel for anyone interested in learning more about eating disorders and the recovery process involved. I don’t think it’s something I would give to someone with an eating disorder as this book would be EXTREMELY triggering.
All in all, it was really nice to read a book where it was all about the character’s recovery and romance figured very minimally into the story and her ability to recover and seek help.
