Great book that deals with Lia’s battle with anorexia and cutting. It also deals with the death of her friend Cassie who was Bulimic. I thought the Author did a great job showing how Lia viewed herself, food, those around her and her life in general. This was a book I had a hard time putting down. I also liked the writing style. It read like a journal with the crossed out words. I liked how the Author used this technique to show what Lia was thinking in her head vs. what she said out loud.
