“Sheinmel proves there’s a lot more to an eating disorder than food, or the lack thereof.”
Publishers Weekly, August 20, 2012:
“This drama about a girl on the road to anorexia offers candid insights into the psychological factors underlying the condition. …Sheinmel’s depiction of her self-defeating behavior comes across as vivid and painfully truthful.”

School Library Journal (online), January 8, 2013:
“Sethie’s plight will resonate not only with teens who have dealt with eating disorders but with any reader who has felt the unyielding pressure to conform to a just out-of-reach ideal.”
