PURGE by NICOLE JOHNS
Here's a compelling non-fiction pick for all you fans of A Child Called It and other memoirs. Purge is a true story of what the author, Nicole went through with her eating disorder. She struggled with it over many years and documented it in a journal. Her binging, purging, and eating restrictions caused heart and other health problems. Eventually, it got so bad that she spent some time in a rehab center to help her get through her disorder. It's a true and sometimes difficult book to read, but an important one, especially for teen girls.
