I was expecting the book to be more about the sister with the eating disorder. It was interesting though.

I felt that this was a novel that would draw the attention of a younger audience. The story line in this book allowed the reader to take a journey into an eating disorder, but experience from another point of view. There are many books out now that are about eating disorders, however, it seems rare to find one that shows this growing problem from another point of view. Overall, a great read.

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 a bad book but not one that will leave any impression on you long term. It's characters are so flat that I feel like you could put them in any generic family drama and they'd slip right in unnoticed.

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.

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.

I had an eating disorder myself, although it wasn't the same one in the book; I was bulimic. This book inspired me to start eating healthy, it really makes you think about what you are doing to yourself. Everyone must definitely read this.

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.

No book could ever truly show how horrible anorexia is, but this story comes close. Being a former anorexic myself with (too) many similarities to Cassie, it gave me a hint as to what my family and friends had to deal with. I recommend this book for anyone who either has an eating disorder, or knows someone who does (and that is just about everyone!)
