This was a very interesting read.
A book about a girl, Jennifer, who struggles with an eating disorder around 1980?? , It starts out in 3rd person then going into 1st person.
Jennifer didn't want to tell her family about her eating disorder, she was afraid of hurting them.
Jennifer finally stands up and does it and no one belives her.
When Jennifer finally gets put in the eating disorder facillity she finds out the nurses despise her.

I really liked this book,
The haters can hate. I liked it.

I don't understand this book. Why would a girl force her family to admit she has an eating disorder? A real person suffering from an eating disorder wouldn't want help or even realize that they need help.
