Stand Tall Little Girl was such a powerful read for me It s a true story and almost a memoir of the author s struggle with anorexia as a teen and moving into adulthood Hope started developing the illness when she was 13 and the book follows her hopsitalisation and eventual recovery This all makes it sound pretty straightforward but Hope opens up about the devastating effects that eating disorders have not only on your mind and body but on all aspects of ife and those around youThere are snippets from Hope s mother in the book which I think are so important explaining how things can get out of hand when you have an eating disorder I always see people asking how did the parents not notice when a teen gets to a point of extreme illness due to
an ED and Hope s mum explains how hard it actually isIED and Hope s mum explains how hard it actually isI it s so important that Hope shows there s no uick fix to an ED and the reality of relapse even when it s way down the ine from the start of your recovery journey This was a book I really connected with and I would definitely recommend it especially to Parents Of Teens That Want of teens that want better insight into what might be going on Stand Tall Little Girl is written from the heart Hope Men lays her soul bare as she fights against her so called friend to overcome the cruel reality of Anorexia Hope takes you on her journey as she toys with A and in return A plays with her Controlling her dominating her andeading her every move The overwhelming emotion it unlocked as she contemplated ending her Isotopic Carbon life with her uestionable thoughts of giving in and ending the battleeft me reaching for the tissues This isn t a self help book of how to succeed in the fight with A but to give positivity and hope to those who embark on a similar path Stand Tall Little Girl is a soul searching journey where she s triumphant in her battle Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes basking in glory truly inspirational Hope and her story Where there is The Robotics Primer (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents) (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents) (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents Series) lifethere is Hope Andastly a few words from Hope You think anorexia is your best friend and that the value that she gives you will Step Out of Your Story last forever But the reality is anorexia is a manipulative bitch Sheies to you and that value she gives you will not The Eyes of the Dead last forever Recovery is hard work and seemsong but is totally worth fighting to get to that point Raw beautiful heartbreaking and ultimately powerful This memoir will gives you an honest and unflinching journey through eating disorders and mental health complete with all the inspiring highs and crushing Rules for a Lady lows Definitely a must read Love Love LOVED ITI will say to anyone who suffers with Eating Issues knows anyone with an Eating Disorder hasost people due to ED s Suicide Mental Health or even the oss of Grand Parents aswell as struggling yourself with your mental healththen I would advise you read this on a Good DayI wouldn t advise reading this when your mind set is in a bad placeI myself struggle with my eating it fluctuates between Ana and Binge aswell as my own Mental Health issues along side physical health issues regarding HormonesI too have ost ABC loved ones to all of the above and I too have attempted Suicide on Numerous occasions and to be honest I haven t been Mentally well theseast few week and so u do.

For the most Part Is Sort Of this is sort of not a criticism not a bad take on anorexia and recovery especially because she talks about relapse and continuing to struggle but I ve read so many of these at this point that a ot of them run together and it takes than this to stand out from the pack but I m interested in the role of family here That is Virgo talks about having a very supportive family yay but she also has things Hunted like this from diary entries Kate is so thin It s horrible how fat I am That s just something else she is better at than me I feelike everyone Gingerbread Heart looks at me and thinks she s the thin one the better anorexic and I am just this fat person who is eating too much and shouldn t even be in an eating disorder ward 68 I went to see Grandma today I hadn t really prepared myself for what awaited mean emaciated woman I didn t even recognise She knew she was going to die but she didn t care She had been consumed by the drive toose weight Was she winning by being thin 69I think that in the first case it s just a matter of disordered thinking not that Kate Virgo s sister was actually anorexic but that Virgo was in the process of restoring her weight and feeling terribly self conscious about it But I m not entirely sure partly because of the material about her grandmother Virgo talks elsewhere as well about her grandmother s eating disorder and it s all in the context of her grandmother dying It s not clear to me whether there were other medical issues but active starvation certainly can t have helped And that is fascinating to me There s new research drawing connections between genes and eating disorders and the idea of them running in families is not new but there is so much here that could be explored in depth I m blanking on whether this was her maternal or paternal grandmother returned the book to the ib but for Virgo s mother or father how terribly sad and terribly complicated to have your child just out of hospital and your mother dying from the same disease I ve occasionally seen books in which somebody talks about their mother having an eating disorder as well or in which there s a brief discussion of grandparents aunts etc who clearly have disordered relationships with food but never something this directDisorder For The Most Part
