"LACED WITH DANGER, IN-SIGHT, AND HUMOR, PURGE IS ONE GIRLS'S REMARKABLE AND DARING JOURNEY TO MAKE HERSELF WELL AGAIN" - SARAH DARER LITTMAN
"PURGE" BY SARAH DARER LITTMAN
The book Purge by Sarah Darer Littman is to be recommended to anyone who is struggling with any eating disease. Also, if you or anyone you know is thinking of becoming anorexic or bulimic, recommend this novel.
Even if you aren't diagnosed with this disease, or any other disease, I would still recommend this book.
