Teenage Casey Powell secretly suffers from anorexia nervosa, a mental and physical illness of deliberately starving herself or making herself vomit, because of her troubled home life and problems at school.

Kessa is required to attend group therapy and is eventually discharged.
I read this book when i was about 11 and it honestly became part of my downfall. Another criticism was that its plot differed too much from the novel.

The beauty recently confessed the most valuable piece of advice her famous parents gave her was to 'always be herself'. I would not recommend this book due to the nature of it, though the story itself was good. Many other people have this same disorder.
