Not that great

When I read the information about the book, I thought it would be about a girl helping her sister to fight anorexia. The book was hardly about that. It was more about the girl's boyfriend and having sex in a gas station. It was disappointing.

    Not Just about Eating Disorders

    This book isn't like most books about eating disorders because it is centered on one girl's life and her relationships with her family and boyfriend. It shows an eating disorder in literature through a new perspective; it's not narrated by the person with the disorder. I really enjoyed this book because for one I am around the same age as the narrator. I liked how it wasn't just about anorexia.

    Good book

    Interesting story of a girl trapped in a family where everyone is dominated by a tyranical father. The book is more about her and her coming to terms with herself than with her sister's illness.

    interesting point of view

    Most books on the subject of eating disorders are either from the point of view of the sufferer or a medical expert. This, however, is the story of the sister of an anorexic. The reader sees how the illness affects the sufferer's family. I loved being able to see from the younger sister's viewpoint.
