"This book sat unopened on my coffee table for weeks - not for lack of interest but maybe due to a fear of the emotions it might trigger. I finally opened it and read it in one sitting. To Michelle, thank you for sharing your story. You showed extreme braveness in the openness and rawness found in this book. A braveness that is appreciated and inspiring. Wishing you all the best in your journey."
- Kathrin A.
The poetry throughout adds beauty to the darkness of her struggle. This is a strong, brave girl fighting a war with herself. Hopefully peace finds all minds of ED.
"I couldn't put this book down. It's such an important read for those who have struggled or are in danger or has a loved one with an eating disorder."
- C. Carter
"Something so special about this book is how real it truly is, as many quietly suffer and receive judgments from others, or feel alone (especially as teenagers) when dealing with eating disorders."
