Reviewers wanted

I have a favor to ask, dear readers.

If you've already read Brave Girl Eating: A Family's Struggle with Anorexia, would you write an Amazon review of the book? It doesn't have to be long or complex--a two-sentence comment can work just fine.

People actually read those reviews, and make decisions about what to buy from them. I'm doing everything I can to get the word out--not just about the book but about family-based treatment as an option for families.

A great big thank you to you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Harriet

As a mother of an anorexic daughter, a follower of Maudsley Parents on Facebook and an active member of Feast and Around the Dinner Table forum, where, luckily for us, Harriet now and again pops up to share her experience and expertise, I am in an unassailable position to strongly encourage anyone who is dealing with an eating disorder, whether you are ill yourself or caring for someone with an eating disorder, to read this book and find out how to recover.

Above all, it offers hope, alongside practical advice and pulls no punches as to how hard it is to recover from this most lethal of illnesses and what hard work it is for everyone involved.

Good on you, Harriet, for the book and for sharing so much of you and your family with us all and giving us the strength of purpose to carry on fighting. She is indeed a very brave girl.
