    1. I finished this book in one sitting In fact, I read until nearly 4am It is a tragic story of a mother s loss It is written with grace, hope, honesty and intellect If someone you care about is struggling with disordered eating, get this book for them and read it yourselves There is a lot of insight into the mental anguish caused by this unfortunate and misunderstood disorder Throughout the story, the author blends her daughter s poetry, journal entries, and letters home to help the reader fully g [...]


    2. I found her webpage while recovering Andreas poems are some of the best poems I ve ever read with regard to eatingdisorders and just life in general.


    3. Amazing Earth shattering From the voice of a girl who succumbed to bulimia at a young age and after a brief time with the illness She was on the road to healing and passed in her sleep, hoping for a better life This book was put together by her parents her mother and father both very strong humans and unfortunately of the norm these days as many women and men are taken by this devastating illness Though no book is going to make any one sufferer open their eyes enough, this is a book I keep on [...]


    4. This book is painful, honest, thoughtful, distressing, inspiring, wonderful I admire Doris and her family so much for being willing to be so transparent and vulnerable in writing this book It has made me much aware of my own thoughts about myself that seem safe enough but that plant terrible seeds in my own mind and those around me If your life has been touched by disordered eating or someone suffering from an eating disorder, this book will touch your heart deeply Just one family s story, very [...]


    5. Great book Doris uses excerpts from her daughter s diary along with her own writings and recollections to recount Andrea s last year of life and her tragic death from bulimia She doesn t shy away from reflecting on her own role in Andrea s illness, and provides an excellent list of resources for concerned parents.


    6. The book that finally made me realize that eating disorders can kill ANYONE, regardless of weight, duration of behaviors, etc It s also a touching story told through the eyes of both mother and daughter I found no triggers no numbers Warning a very emotional read.


    7. I always find it difficult to evaluate non fiction I don t read a lot of it, unless it s research for my own work This book was honest, forthright, contemplative, and ultimately helpful to me as a writer I imagine that it would also be of significant help to other mothers suffering the loss of a child to an eating disorder Doris Smeltzer s mission is clear, and this book goes a long way to challenging taboos and alleviating the stigma of this illness It is also a stellar rumination on the grievi [...]


    8. So sad Reminded me a bit of me and mom and what I was going through the last couple of years I wish the author had been a bit explicit with details of her daughter s eating disorder She was so vague I understand that she didn t want this story to be triggering for others, but it was hard to relate to because we knew so little about Andrea s situation.


    9. I actually had to read this for a class I am taking and ended up being completely caught up in it It completely pulled at my heartstrings the entire time I was reading.
