Reveiw: Laurie Anderson Halse creates amazing stories. I've read a couple books but Laurie before, but this one definitely made her a better author in my eyes. I felt that this book was very touching and dealt with a very important issue. Many times people over look eating disorders or even the things that can cause them. Laurie showed how hard it can be for someone to get away from an eating disorder. And also how then can start between friends. I can't wait to read her next book(:
