About this book
By Gail Sidonie Šobat | Published by Great Plains Teen Fiction
An exploration of eating disorders
Life is very grave for Anise. Hospitalized for anorexia, she wonders about the point of it all. Her frigid mother and ineffectual father seem oblivious to her struggle. Her beloved brother is too busy screwing up his own life to take note of hers.
Living on the loony ward seems not to be making any difference at all, and Anise feels like a prisoner. Her only free choice is to turn to her journal - the place where she can make scathing observations about her family, other people, the world; the place where she can dream, and where she can decide whether to live or die.
