    1. This book is anti-feminist and insulting to non-theists. The author repeatedly equates mental illness with weakness, sin, and evil. She mentions regretting her acceptance to our culture's beauty standards and feminine ideals, yet she tells women how to act in order to live a life worthy of God's love. Her life is not only consumed by a brief struggle with Anorexia and overexercising, but also her white/cis/hetero privilege, which she fails to acknowledge. This book can probably only be helpful t [...]


    2. Is this even real? It reads like Christian propaganda about body issues. Certainly I have no problems with Christianity or if someone uses any religion to help recover from a problem, but really what is this. The journal entries definitely don't read like any person's real private thoughts and the extra quotes from other girls, what. Your mom suggested you play outside so you develop an eating disorder? I'm trying really hard to not judge, and not just because of the section of the book about Go [...]


    3. Horrible, horrible, horrible. This book reads more like a checklist than a story of recovery from an eating disorder. I don't know if the author was just being evasive or honestly thought she was telling her story - but what I do know is that this book was a waste of time to read, especially if you are desperate for help. She made recovery too easy and too elusive at the same time.


    4. This book was a far cry from the harsh reality of Eating disorders. I strongly disliked this book in all aspects possible.


    5. bearable up until about part 4, then its just utter bullshit. will definitely not read again. author sounds like she has no idea what an eating disorder is. ever hear an idiot going on about "just eat a cheeseburger and stop worrying about such petty things think about the starving children in africa" well basically this terrible book just about makes those smug jackasses look like they're right. she doesnt give a crap about helping anyone overcome a mental illness this is just 200 useless pages [...]


    6. Way too simplistic for my taste, which made everything seem unrealistice. And the narrative voice was unengaging.


    7. Well, that wast really any better than other reviews suggested.I do appreciate that she says up front that religion is not a cure-all for eating disorders, but the book devolves pretty quickly into something very, I don't know, zealous. It's equal parts a book about how religion helped her get past an eating disorder and a book on how she was sinning by having an eating disorder, whichwell.(Side note: "I believe God allowed me to develop an eating disorder for a reason. I also know that since Go [...]


    8. Just ho humI felt like most of the book was really only written to persuade the author that she has indeed overcome her eating disorder. The editing in areas where there were steps or bullet points were so had in some places that entire words were missing. Just glad it was a fast read.


    9. More focused on religion and her beliefs than the narrative of her struggle. Probably a great guidebook for someone looking for a way to heal themselves from their eating disorder through God. Otherwise, poorly written, bland, and boring.


    10. This was a good book to read after I had recovered from anarexia however I am now going through it all over again and this time it's worse. I found it a very encouraging book to help me keep on the right track.


    11. This is actually a story of recovery, rather than the disease. Pettit takes a sincere, Christian approach to her recovery. The book also has quotes in the margins from others struggling with eating disorders


    12. Nei, bare nei. Har lest mange bøker om spiseforstyrrelser - dette er den desidert verste av dem alle. Greide ikke å lese den ferdig.





    13. Quick read. I'm not a super religious person, but I admire how she was able to find healing through God and her faith. Lots of quotes/passages from the Bible that I could have done without.
