`The style is clear and engaging and ought to reach young people who are experiencing difficulties. The level of information contained would be of equal value to the families of these young people in helping them understand the emotions of their loved ones′ - Educational Psychology

Looking in the bathroom mirror for the first time since my illness had begun, I saw how I really looked. I was a walking skeleton, with my skin stretched tight over my bones. My face had become a skull, and when I smiled, it looked like I was wearing a horror mask.

Anna has suffered a serious eating disorder and, more importantly, she has recovered!

In this book she provides the reader with:

" a moving account of her experiences

" information about eating disorders

" a plan for recovery

" HOPE.

The book is intended for young people and their families, and all those who care for children at risk.
