I BATTLE ANOREXIA DAILY. EVERYTHING IN THIS BOOK IS SO TRUE AS IF I WERE WRITING IT MYSELF. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A BOOK WITH TIPS ON BEING ANOREXIC THEN THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. I HAVE READ MANY BOOKS ABOUT THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RECOVER. UNFORTUNATELY, JENNIFER'S STORY IS THE ONLY BOOK I HAVE READ THAT CHOKED ME UP AND MADE BE REALIZE MY LIFE COULD ALSO HAVE THE SAME ENDING. I HAVE ASKED MY FAMILY MEMBERS TO READ THIS BOOK AND PERHAPS HAVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF AN ANOREXIC MIND.

I think the first thing that strikes me about this book was the unconditional love that Jennifer's father Gordon Hendricks has for his daughter. Throughout the story you get the sense that this man was the only one who 'got it.' As a 'recovered' anorexic myself I really thought this book was an honest portrayal about the battle between mind and body. Taking writings from Jennifer's journal and incorporating a story around the events in her journal really gives you a intimate look at her struggle. An honest struggle. This book about recovery was unlike any other anorexia book I have read. Most books about this subject go through the same thing, girl gets sick, girl goes through recovery, girl gets well, girl inspires others. However in Jennifer's story she takes you through the torment of her illness and gives you a clear sense of how the healthcare system does not work for those who struggle with eating disorders. Jennifer was couragous for wanting to tell her story. Gordon Hendricks was generous to share it with all of us in the hopes that it will help others. Bravo!
