BOOK HOARDER’S SELECTION, is a feature of Reading In Winter, which will feature one book from my collection that I plan to read in the coming week. These are NOT review books, but books I’ve purchased, which have been neglected for a long time.
AUTHOR: Denise Jaden
HOW LONG I’VE HAD IT: Since July — gifted from Sarah!
WHY I’M READING IT: I’ve read a few books about eating disorders and have really liked all of them. I know that sounds strange and perverse to love a book about an eating disorder, but it’s true. Something about them just wrenches deep inside of me. This book looks pretty awesome and the cover is absolutely gorgeous.
SYNOPSIS: From the author of Losing Faith, a novel about two sisters and the eating disorder that threatens to destroy their family.
Loann’s always wanted to be popular and pretty like her sister, Claire. So when Claire’s ex-boyfriend starts flirting with her, Loann is willing to do whatever it takes to feel special… even if that means betraying her sister.
But as Loann slips inside Claire’s world, she discovers that everything is not as it seems. Claire’s quest for perfection is all-consuming, and comes at a dangerous price. As Claire increasingly withdraws from friends and family, Loann struggles to understand her and make amends. Can she heal their relationship —and her sister—before it’s too late?
