Often times, novels about eating disorders are portrayed horribly or have an extremely sappy and idealistic ending in which the protagonist is magically cured of their illness, but this is not one of those stories. I thought that Laurie was able to beautifully portray the main character in a way that gave justice to those who suffer from anorexia, and showed that it takes courage and perseverance to overcome it. -"There is no magic cure, no making it all go away forever. There are only small steps upward; an easier day, an unexpected laugh, a mirror that doesn't matter anymore."-
