Quite a convincing story about how you can blind yourself to the very real issues in your family. Not the best story, but well-written for its genre.

I thought this book was really good but really depressing. I read it within a day. I had a hard time putting it down. I have only read books on anorexia from first person perspective, I liked reading it through someone else's perspective. But it was a very very sad story.
