The real journal entries of a teen girl suffering with anorexia show the terrifying grip the disorder has on her.

How can she explain that even when she tries to develop healthier eating habits, there is a demon wriggling inside her mind, determining her every step?

You see? It is "normal" to lose weight. I told you.Yes, I am always right.You must keep going.Keep going.

Warning: this book deals with the mature topic of eating disorders. This book is the author's diary from grade 8, when she obtained her eating disorder, until the end of high school, when she beat it. She journals almost everyday with the struggles of not eating, over exercising, fighting with friends and family, and anxiety. She also includes thoughts from Ed, the demon that lives inside her head feeding her eating disorder. This book is so powerful to read because the emotions are so raw and real, and to finally see her overcome her disorder and not let Ed have control over her every move was amazing to read. Highly recommend to read this just to see what its really like for those struggling with an eating disorder. Rating 5 out 5 stars.
