Did you ever wonder what events may have happened to start them on the road to anorexia? Well, then this book is for you. It's a journal, as seen through the eyes of a teenage anorexic (my daughter), and takes you step-by-step as to what she was thinking, what was happening around her and what was going on in her life as she sank deeper and deeper into this horrific disease. The outpouring of emotions and the deafening cries for help are not always so obvious, as you will see.It's educational, it's entertaining, it's inspirational, it's sad, it's happy, it's bizarre, it's EYE OPENING! My daughter has gone from falling below 80 lbs to 120 lbs back now to 78 lbs as she is STILL battling this disease. My daughter has decided that she wanted me to take her journal and create this book in the hopes that it will help one person stay away, get over, or just plain understand the mind of an anorexic. Having no insurance and the cost of a program that will actually help is about $2000 dollars a day - something not very reachable to most of us - ALL PROFITS from this book are going to get her into that treatment program and save her life.

spoon fed a year in the life of a teenage anorexic as seen through her eyes Reviews
I don't want to be too hard on this, because at the end of the day it's a teenager's diary—not something that was originally written with an eye to publication. But more often than not, teenagers' diaries do not make for interesting reading material, and this...isn't one of those few. It's not an inaccurate portrayal of what it's like to be in the head of someone with an eating disorder, but, well, that's not a very interesting place to be either. Very repetitive, very negative, very little insight. (Search for 'I hate' in the ebook and it'll turn up 202 instances.) That's fine for a diary, of course, which can be as much an outlet as anything else, but as published material...well, at the very least I would have hoped that Spell Check might have been used.(The things one finds when one tries Kindle Unlimited...)Side note: It's really odd to me that Jake Jacobs is listed as the author, when pretty much all he did was write the introduction (the rest is his daughter's diary). Also really odd that his other self-publication credits include a book about weight-loss through walking, which seems rather tone-deaf when you consider how much page space his daughter devotes to talking about the compulsion to walk (and do other exercise) to lose weight.
It's interesting to see someone else have the disease. But this just helps me know that no one really wants to read the average journal. It's pretty mundane stuff only YOU and your nosey parents care about.
A little boring and depressingit's not that interesting. it gets a little mundane, and she pretty much repeats herself a lot. it's just about girl with a mental disorder who thinks she hates life. I wouldn't recommend it.
