This novel is definitely a hit. I had been looking forward to reading it for a long time, and I am so glad that I finally got the chance. It deals with such raw, significant topics and takes us through Anna's struggle with an eating disorder. I truly cared about all of the characters and was rooting for all of the patients at 17 Swann Street to succeed. Overall, this story is so powerful and gripping. I am absolutely amazed that this was Yara Zgheib's debut novel. The writing and execution of this story are so incredible that I was sure she had written other novels before. I cannot wait to pick up Zgheib's next novel.
This book is also a great learning experience for readers to expand their knowledge on eating disorders and gain more understanding of what patients go through.
I highly recommend this book! It is an emotional read, but it is so worth it.
