Unrealistic idilclic portrayal of bulimia, Treatment, and recovery. Girl accepts help goes into treatment program that would never exist. Perfect girl with perfect friends miracle recovery of emotional and mental health, family and boyfriend that are totally unrealisticly transformed as well. If you want a sappy romance novel where love conquers all read this if u want a realistic book about eating disorders or recovery or treatment centres look elsewhere

Brilliant but hard to read

This book is legend of course and for good reason it's beautifully written and gives fantastic insight into the writers mind and eating disorder. However the writer is so bright that combined with her unique writing style this book is harder to read than most. Not an easy listen but well worth the effort thanks

Super annoying book to listen to because of the shallow storyline and the questions and reflections at the end of each chapter. May be a very interesting read for those who struggle with fad diets or have an interest in athletics or veganisum but as an eating disorder book pretty lame

A step down but still ok

Worth a listen if your already hooked on the first two books but not as good personally I adore books one and two and found these next two a bit of a step down still it's a must read to finish the series and it's still ok

Not as good as the first two in series

I really liked this book it's very detailed and into the mind of an eating disorder it reminds me of Maria hornburgers wasted but without the over fancy words or complex sentence/paragraph structure. This book is just as good while being easier to read and overall I think that makes it even better than wasted because it's more relatable for the average reader.

Surprisingly good

I was initially put off by the apparent show of competitive vibe I got from the writer and that bloody Rhodes farm woman that crops up everywhere but the actual book was great don't be put off by the sample or the description this is a great eating disorder read and the writer doesn't come of showy in the book she's raw and honest and humble so give it a try I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Good show niki well done

Not that great pretty confusing and written in a hard to follow way. Probably appeals to those who don't have eating disorders but a bit cryptic and mythical for those with history or current ED looking to relate to or learn from a character to live with this illness

This book and her mums together make up the best ED books I've ever read and I've read nearly all of them. Well worth investing in both elena vanishing and her mums hope and other luxuries.
