But recognizing her need for help is only the first tenuous step on a long road to recovery.Marty's ability to find a way to live, despite the powerful lure of anorexia, is the core of this fine, insightful novel.Marnelle Tokio's semi autobiographical story will resonate with every teenager who faces issues of family, body image, and self-confidence.

This book was wonderful! It was fiction, but the information on anorexia was all true.
