Teaser Tuesday #2: Letting Ana Go

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

In the tradition of Go Ask Alice and Lucy in the Sky, a harrowing account of anorexia and addiction.

She was a good girl from a good family, with everything she could want or need. But below the surface, she felt like she could never be good enough. Like she could never live up to the expectations that surrounded her. Like she couldn’t do anything to make a change.

But there was one thing she could control completely: how much she ate. The less she ate, the better—stronger—she felt.

But it’s a dangerous game, and there is such a thing as going too far…

Her innermost thoughts and feelings are chronicled in the diary she left behind.
"Wednesday, October 17
Weight: 110

I hate myself right now.
Everything was going great today. Got up this morning and did a hard forty five-minute run. I weighed in a pound lighter than i was on Sunday, the ate an egg, a plum, and a spoonful of peanut butter for breakfast. At lunch I only had a salad, and then Mom grilled fish for dinner and i had a few pieces of broccoli. Then I was upstairs doing my homework and I smelled it: cookies."

  1. This sounds like a fascinating (but sad) story.
    My Teaser is from LEAN ON ME.

  2. I saw this book when I was at B&N yesterday and I'm considering picking it up. Glad to see a TT for it!
    Here's mine for this week!
