The fast lane is much too slow for Rachel Walsh, and Manhattan is the perfect place for a young Irish female to overdo everything. But Rachel's love of a good time is about to land her in the emergency room and cost her a job and the boyfriend she adores.When her loving family hustles her back home and checks her into Ireland's answer to the Betty Ford Clinic, Rachel is hopeful. Perhaps it will be lovely - spa treatments, celebrities, that kind of thing. Instead, she finds a lot of group therapy, which leads her, against her will, to some important self-knowledge. She will also find something that all women like herself fear: a man who might actually be good for her.More

I liked that you saw Rachel's life through her eyes, and in the beginning, agreed with her "nothing's wrong with me' opinion. You start to see her problems at the same time she does, by listening to her peers.
It's not the same..but "Running in Heels" by Anna Maxted has the same type of story. The main character has no idea she is anorexic, and neither do you, not in the beginning. It's not until her friends show her (and you) the facts that she finds out.
My favorite scene was when Rachel hooks up with Chris and realizes quite literally in the middle of it, that it isn't what she wants anymore.
