Looking in the bathroom mirror for the first time since my illness had begun, I saw how I really looked. I was a walking skeleton, with my skin stretched tight over my bones. My face had become a skull, and when I smiled, it looked like I was wearing a horror mask.

Anna has suffered a serious eating disorder and, more importantly, she has recovered!

In this book she provides the reader with:

" a moving account of her experiences

" information about eating disorders

" a plan for recovery


The book is intended for young people and their families, and all those who care for children at risk.
