Booking Through Thursday
Have you ever used a book to instruct someone of something or is there anyone for whom you would like to do that? (I don’t mean a text book for a class, but a work of fiction or non-fiction that would get a certain message across either through plot or character). What is the book and what do you wish to impart?
Slim to None: A Journey Through the Wasteland of Anorexia Treatment by Jennifer Hendricks, Gordon Hendricks
It's a non-fiction account, taken from diary entries, of a girl's stuggle with anorexia. It is a frightening memoir. And it helped a lot. I make myself read it every once in a while, to remind myself of the danger I've been in.
