Review: This semi-autobiography tracks the author's emotional journey through a two-month stay in an eating disorder unit. The complexities of eating disorders become apparent, and the reader gets an insider's look at the treatment plans, in-unit social hierarchies (bulimics, anorexics, overeaters, etc.), manipulation of weight results, and journal entries that track the author's progress along the way. Anyone with an eating disorder, their family, friends, and those in support roles will benefit from this very realistic portrayal of its complexities and challenges.
