With more than eight million Americans-most of them female-suffering from eating disorders, this book couldn't be more timely or important. Erica Smith takes a well-balanced, substantive, & credible approach to a potentially life-threatening problem-anorexia. She examines the causes of anorexia & its signs & symptoms, & points readers to resources that can help change anorexia's destructive course. Poignant, revealing case histories & vignettes combined with a frank, down-to-earth writing style make this book particularly accessible to young readers.
