She tells her story from the beginning to the present, describing the scenes and feelings and all. I could relate to a lot of what she wrote. The book is sad, but it tells the truth about the things that eating disorders bring.
I consider Marya Hornbacher a very strong woman. Deciding to recover and be healthier and just.. escape from the ED cage is a brave thing to do. She says she is still underweight (or was by the time the book was published -- she went from 50 pounds to 100). There is no "100% recovery", in my opinion, because there will always be this little part of us, deep inside, that will not be cured.
If any of you want to read the book, and I totally recommend it, you can find a free PDF if you google the title and author.
