‘I LOVED your book - very powerful and beautifully written. I’ve been telling everyone I know they have to read it!’

‘I thought the story was really intriguing and I found it hard to stop reading!’
‘This novel gave a very unique insight into the protagonists inner voices and demons personifying them completely and showing the characters fears and emotions. The dual narration made the story more intriguing as it not only showed one girl’s struggle to cope with an eating disorder but the struggle of her relatively ‘normal’ sister and how she coped with her sister’s disorder, this was a very enjoyable read.’
