Publisher Comments:

Vibrant, talented, strong, and beautiful, Andrea Smeltzer seemed destined for a great future. But after a one-year struggle with bulimia, she died in her sleep at age 19, catapulting her mother Doris into a wrenching but ultimately rewarding journey of discovery. This unabashed account not only speaks about one familyand#8217;s tragedy, but also critiques the social and personal attitudes toward our bodies and appearance that create victims like Andrea. Andrea's poetry and journal entries, combined with her mother's reflections, offer insight and understanding about a crushing disorder that afflicts far too many young people.

Loran, June 25, 2006 (view all comments by Loran)
This book should be required reading for parents. It is a painful, but important and incredibly touching story. The author and the life and death of her daughter are a gift; a resource to help a daughter or a friend come to terms with an eating disorder that is a killer.
