Never heard of it. Does it have ed parts in it? The Google reviews don't reveal much.

yes, the main character developed an ED, there is one scene that sticks out in my memory where she was stood in front of the mirror describing how thin she’d got that her knees looked big and knobby. It was such a long time ago that I read it that I don’t remember how prominent the ED is in the book, but when I read it at the tender age of… maybe 16… that was all that really stick with me. I’m going to re read it.

It has to have been bad enough to have been removed from the library here because I never could find it again. I had to order it online.

I have another one here that I haven’t read yet that I got online at the same time called Dancing on my Grave, but I haven’t read that one yet. It’s by Gelsey Kirkland.

Countless, it's about an anorexic 17 year old who gets pregnant and decides to try and make a compromise with her ED and not restrict until the baby's born. I'm suprised it didn't trigger me honestly.

girls under pressure by jaqueline wilson, must've been around 12 reading it.

however I also remember a play we had to do in drama class around age 11/12 about eating disorders. I don't recall the name of it, but on the front of the book was a photo of someone who was tied in a knot at the stomach. not sure which of the two i read first, but the year we did that play was when i started joining these forums and communities on instagram. I found other girls in my class in the instagram communities aswell, its sad if you think about it cause we were just kids. god i hope they don't still make kids take part in these plays for drama classes, that was back in 2014/2015 so hopefully its changed by now.
