This is one of the best eating disorder books I have read. This story shows the true ups and downs of eating disorder recover and the impact the disorder has on the family. I recommend this book if you want to learn more about treatment and recovery as it impacts not only the individual with an individual, but to those surrounding her as well.
Overall I am glad I read this book and particularly enjoyed the sections of the book where the author shared researched data and projects as well as historical information. The downside to this book is that through no fault of her own the author’s voice sounds young almost like the teenage daughter herself, so it was hard to imagine it was the mother you were listening too. Also I felt whilst she tried to uncover the effect that anorexia had on the family by labelling it the ‘demon’ I felt she detached herself and her daughter from the emotional reality and impact that the disorder had on the family. However, it’s worth a read if only for the interesting research she shares.
