This is the story of a gifted writer that led an extraordinary life & died too young due to anorexia. Her name may not have been famous, but most of us have probably heard some of Debby Barham's work, not realizing that it was the work of a child living in an adult's world.
If one reads this book, they would realize that anorexia is not a disease to be trifled with, or trivialized. Too many books regarding eating disorders are used as guide manuals. Prominent cheekbones or collarbones may be considered glamorous, but the less spoken of symptoms of anorexia (scabs from hair loss, weeping leg ulcers, dementia, etc...) certainly are not. This book thoroughly describes her suffering through the eyes of her father.
