From the back cover:
"Leslie Hiller is a bright, attractive, talendted teenager who leads a privileged life in New York City. She is also an perfectionist. When she starts something, whether it's a drawing or her homework, she will not stop until it is totally finished. This time, she has started to diet. And Leslie finds herself becoming obsessed, getting thinner and thinner, until she is forced to realize that her quest for perfection is killing her."
There's quite a bit of fiction out there about anorexia and this is one of the most realistic. The main character reminds me of so many teenage girls I know, it's a little scary. Finalist for the American Book Award.
a good look at anorexia. Story a little simple. Great afterwood by the author.
Simple but too simple. Good but not great. Worth the read if there is time.
Easy read, but not really moving. If you have a few hours to kill you might wanna pick it up.
