Ana, Mia & Me speaks to one young woman's internal battle with Anorexia Nervosa. Written by seventeen-year-old Michelle, this raw recovery memoir provides an authentic look into what life with an eating disorder can look like.

 

The author has added a note to readers, an afterword, and free online resources for those looking to learn more about eating disorders and treatment options.

 

Michelle hopes that by sharing her story, she can let others know it is possible to silence the voices of Ana and Mia.
