Hungry: A Mother and Daughter Fight Anorexia, by Shiela and Lisa Himmel

Posted By Administration, Friday, January 1, 2010

Parent Review:

The farther into the book I read, the more that things our family was going through made sense. It was heartening to learn that other families experienced the same emotions, the same conversations, the same tension between hope dashed and hope renewed. It was especially helpful that both mother, Sheila, and daughter, Lisa, give their individual perspectives on the events leading up to Lisa’s eating disorder and on through her recovery. As Sheila enjoyed increasing success as a food critic, Lisa faced a growing battle with our food obsessed and image conscious culture. I highly recommend this book for any family member struggling to help a loved one.
