    I wish I had the benefit of "Sick" as a resource when grappling with how best to help and support my daughter.
    "Sick" shares an important message for parents about how critical it is to listen to your child and how well intentioned actions may actually have the opposite effect. Laura's writing tackles a difficult topic, but by breaking
    it down into short. clearly written chapters, the reader feels as if they are on the journey with her. For families and professionals dealing with eating disorders, this book is a required read.

    A Worthwhile Read

    In "Sick," Yochelson charts her progression into eating disorders with eyes wide open. From childhood influences all the way through to the full-blown disorders, the author's experience is captured with honesty and full self-awareness. In first-person eating disorders narratives, there can be a ghost of self-delusion haunting the prose, but not so in "Sick." The author holds herself to account. Also, Yochelson's prose style is at once formal yet chatty, and the pacing, once the book gets going, is quite energetic overall. Definitely worth reading!
