A memoir about more than just throwing up, "Not All Black Girls Know How to Eat: A Story of Bulimia," examines one woman's struggle with abuse, poverty, race, gender and (of course) eating disorders (among other things). If you are interested in ED memoirs, this is a pretty good one. Some people might not like that the author focused less on the actual eating disorder and more on her own personal history, but in the end it seemed okay to me. The writing kept me interested and I think this is an important book, especially for people who don't fit the stereotype of what an eating disordered person is. ( )
