Janie is a very realistic character, and her thoughts and emotions were very easy to connect to. At times this book made me feel sick -as vomiting is not my favorite thing to read about- but it was interesting to have a little insight on someone who suffers from bullimia.

This was an awesome book, on a bulimic's perspective on her eating disorder! Read this book! It'll keep you turning pages!

I actually found this book really enjoyable! I felt like i could really relate to the girl in the book. It has good insight into the mind of some with an eating disorder and the feeling that occur with struggling with this disease. Would recommend for young teen girls and anyone who wants a better understanding of what people with eating disorders go through!

this book is HORRIBLE. As someone who has suffered from an eating disorder for over 10 years, I could hardly finish reading the firs 40 pages. Horribly written. I am embarrassed for the woman who wrote this books, because she obviously has had no experience suffering from a sever eating disorder, nor does she seem to have any experience in going in-patient for treatment. Do not read, you will want to punch a wall.

An important topic to be discussed, and a little bit of a different take on how this is written, well done.

This is a great book about the struggles of everyday life with bulimia. I struggle with it everyday and I feel the author did a great job of capturing the thoughts and emotions of a bulimic. Some of the advice given to the character also helped me with my struggle. Great book! I couldn't put it down!
