Good Enough Before she had an eating disorder, twelve year old Riley was many things an aspiring artist, a runner, a sister, and a friend.But now, from inside the inpatient treatment center where she s receiving treatment for anorexia, it s easy to forget all of that Especially since under the influence of her eating disorder, Riley alienated her friends, abandoned her art, turned running into something harmful, and destroyed her family s trust.If Riley wants her life back, she has to recover.Part of her wants to get better As she goes to therapy, makes friends in the hospital, and starts to draw again, things begin to look up.But when her roommate starts to break the rules, triggering Riley s old behaviors and blackmailing her into silence, Riley realizes that recovery will be even harder than she thought She starts to think that even if she does recover, there s no way she ll stay recovered once she leaves the hospital and is faced with her dieting mom, the school bully, and her gymnastics star sister.Written by an eating disorder survivor, this is a realistic depiction of inpatient eating disorder treatment, and a moving story about a girl who has to fight herself to survive.

    A fantastic read about a 12 year old girl named Riley whose parents put her in an in patient treatment center for her anorexia I ve read a number of books that take on eating disorders without shying away from the hard details, but this is the first one I ve read aimed at middle grade readers where, as author, survivor, and recovery advocate Petro Roy herself states she began to exhibit the behaviors It s hard not to root for Riley or any of her peers, and her emotional journeys are up and A fantastic read about a 12 year old girl named Riley whose parents put her in an in patient treatment center for her anorexia I ve read a number of books that take on eating disorders without shying away from the hard details, but this is the first one I ve read aimed at middle grade readers where, as author, survivor, and recovery advocate Petro Roy herself states she began to exhibit the behaviors It s hard not to root for Riley or any of her peers, and her emotional journeys are up and down, much like recovery itself As someone who struggles with a mental illness, I espe...

    I can t give this a star rating, because I have very mixed feelings about it There s some technical writing issues the author puts really important conversations into summary, instead of having them in scene, which kills their emotional immediacy and allows the narrator to gloss over difficult topics The author also jumps forward over scenes that should be important, like Riley s check in after she refuses to eat, which leaves weird gaps in the narrative But those aren t really the crux of I can t give this a star rating, because I have very mixed feelings about it There s some technical writing issues the author puts really important conversations into summary, instead of having them in scene, which kills their emotional immediacy and allows the narrator to gloss over difficult topics The author also jumps forward over scenes that should be important, like Riley s che...
