What I love the most about reading is that you are always learning new things whether that was your goal or not, it just happens. Anorexia is one of those taboo topics that not a lot of people talk about. It's something that is always sidestepped and glossed over. Perhaps, that's why I was completely shocked by some of the things that were described in this book. I had no idea what someone with this disease has to go through and it made me feel so naive that it shocked me as much as it did. I don't personally know anyone going through this disease but if you do then READ THIS BOOK and even if you don't know anyone going through it, you should still read it. I was completely engrossed in the story and even though you wouldn't expect a book on this topic to be a page turner, then you are in for quite a surprise. It was also an amazing love story that had me tearing up and rooting for the relationship to succeed.
