Overview

A deeply moving, rawly honest, and true account of one girl's internal battle to overcome her eating disorders. Darah Echevarría was a mere child of nine when her whole life became a blinkered obsession about one thing: food - eating too much, not eating at all.

Do you have any idea what it is like to live with just one thought dominating over everything you do? When food becomes your entire life? A life of figures. Calories, kilograms, hours, minutes. Counting, always counting. And the lies, the endless promises, the deadlines. the disappointment, the self-deprecation.

'So Now You Know' is a necessary breath of fresh air among a host of scientific, academic explanations, excuses, justifications, legitimisations - it is emotional, sincere, demystifying. A confession.

I found this book to be well written, but very shocking, especially when you are the mother of a girl with anorexia

I never read and that is what I like about this book. It's really thin and written in an easy way. I do not have an eating disorder, but this book allows you to understand what it means to have one. Breann
