Good books about eating disorders - January 24th 2012, 05:13 PM

For my class in school I'm going to have to read a book and write paper on a subject and I want to do eating disorders I've already read: Skinny, the best little girl in the world( I think the title is or that might be the one about cutting either way I read both of those), I've read half of wintergirls until i lost it.

Are there any really good ones out there you can recommend?

I've read the anorexia diaries. And it wasn't bad and I wouldn't not recommend it but it was a bit disappointing at times. Worth it though.

Wasted by Marya Hornbacher is a good one, and it's a true story.

I always did too, non-fiction is a true story Fiction means it's made up.

Stick Figure: A Diary of My Former Self by Lori Gottlieb is great!


wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.
