Author(s): Rhianna Boyd
Though just 20, Rhianna Boyd has had more than her share of setbacks: dyspraxia, chronic pain, arthritis, depression, the death of a best friend ...and a seven-year battle with anorexia. Rhianna's uncompromising story aims to dispel myths about this terrible mental illness, and to inspire others to keep fighting. It takes us through dark and desperate times, but in the end is about overcoming obstacles - and the power of hope. Rhianna's mother closes with signs to watch out for - advice to other parents to pick up the warning signals early, before the disease takes hold.
