(From the publisher):
Anne Beattie was born in England in 1961 and was abandoned by her parents in a railway station at the age of seven months. Adopted by her grandparents and raised in a troubled family, she developed anorexia nervosa at the age of sixteen, and bulimia nervosa, compulsive overeating and depression over the following years. She struggled alone through her illnesses and developed a way of coping with life that has enriched her life and hopefully the lives of others. This story shows how the seeds of the eating disorders were sown, details her fight to overcome them all and is a story of hope for all those who fight similar battles.
