BOOK REVIEW for Letting Ana Go by Anonymous


TITLE:              Letting Anna Go

AUTHOR:        Anonymous

GENRE:          YA

RATING:        3.5 stars

This is the second time reading this book and I have not looked at the review I wrote at the time.

I can say that the most distinct feeling I had while reading this book was anger. Anger at this disease, anger at this girl who had such distorted thinking that she ends up killing herself. I cannot believe just how proud and STUPID she was at the end, basically telling everyone, including her mother that she was going to stay thin and that her mother could go to hell. First thing I thought of was "if I spoke to my mother like that, I would have been sent to my room, after she removed all the books in there.

This book's biggest strength is definitely how well the author shows us how a person with anorexia thinks - how everything is distorted and how powerful the disease is.

The writing is on point and the author does not stray away from how powerfully painful eating disorders are FOR EVERYONE involved.
