"It is heartbreaking to have a child with an eating disorder. But it's worse if you don't feel you have support, good information or a roadmap to recovery. If Your Adolescent Has an Eating Disorderis an excellent way to get grounded. It contains some of the best information you will find on the subject. This volume on eating disorders is direct, frank and evenhanded."--Mary Beth Regan, The Baltimore Sun
