Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old Elena is vanishing. Every day means renewed determination, so every day means fewer calories. This is the story of a girl whose armor against anxiety becomes artillery against herself as she battles on both sides of a lose-lose war in a struggle with anorexia.
Told entirely from Elena's perspective over a five-year period and cowritten with her mother, award-winning author Clare B. Dunkle, Elena's memoir is a fascinating and intimate look at a deadly disease and a must-listen for anyone who knows someone suffering from an eating disorder.

Before listening to this book it helps to listen to her mother’s memoir hope and other luxuries it helps provide a timeline and give the full picture, both sides of the story. Both books are worth reading.

Feels authentic

This book felt like a very honest account of a long lasting struggle with ED. The narration was very good as well. Even a few aha moments during the account of therapy sessions towards the end.
