5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, December 20, 2008
This review is from: Wasted (Paperback)
I liked this book a lot and not 'cause I related to Marya. I didn't. Not in the beginning, anyway. In fact, I don't even recall my life very much at 7 years old; I couldn't really picture someone that young having and ED. I'm not implying she might have been dishonest, but it just made me realize that I wasn't so self-aware at that age, of my own image.

The book is catchy. It's the kind of book where you want to know what happens next. It's the kind of book you want to know how it ends. Though, it *could* be triggering -- as a matter of fact, especially when she says, at the end, that she relapsed following the narration of the events. However, it's honest. An ED is not something that you can shake off by going to the doctor and popping in some pills or being hospitalized for a period of time. It's a life-long battle. And you must fight it every day, within yourself.
