    One thought on “India”

    1. You know, I think there was a missed opportunity here.Of the 180+ eating-disorder related books on my shelf, guess how many of them address eating disorders in black communities? Counting this book, 2 (the other being Not All Black Girls Know How to Eat: A Story of Bulimia). There's also one book (Thin) that includes an interview with a black woman with bulimia. I'll concede one more in case I've missed something.Let's see if I can do the very complex math that adding those up requires and we h [...]

    2.

    3. This book by Victoria Christopher Murray touches on weight issues from a young females point of view. Readers will understand the consequences of trying to be someone that they are not. The book also touches on self-esteem and pressures of being young. I recommend this book to all young adults especially females.

    4. Eating disorders, self esteem and size issues is a very serious situation facing our society (No matter your age group).I am very glad that this book addresses this issue and it comes from a Christian perspective.

    5. I really enjoyed India's story and am looking forward to getting to know Vee and Aaliyah.***SPOILER*** Question/ThoughtI wonder if we will see Riley again.

    6. This book is an amazing story of how certain struggles aren't just a "white" thing but they are an "everybody" thing. Anorexia is nothing to play with and this book tells the truth behind the facade.
