I love Wasted, it's beautifully written.  I love her comparisons - Fire and Ice as a simile for bulimia and anorexia respectively really spoke to me.  


Have you read the sequel, Madness?  She's mostly recovered from the ED in this one, although she relapses a bit - it's about her Bipolar disorder.

Bulimia is a bitch.

I read Wintergirls too, it's my favorite. It's so incredible how you can relate to everything she says.

I practically have it memorized. My copy is highlighted and marked up to the point of nearly being unreadable. I tell everyone who is close to someone with an ED to read it. It spoke to me on so many levels. I left home young, as well, to go to a boarding school where eating disorders and general insanity were the norm, so the chapter about her time at Interlochen was especially relatable.
