Asking for help is only the first step Jennifer can’t go on like this—binging, purging, starving, all while trying to appear like she’s got it all together. But when she finally confesses her secret to her parents and is hospitalized at the Samuel Tuke Center, her journey is only beginning. As Jennifer progresses through her treatment, she learns to recognize her relationships with food, friends, and family—and how each relationship is healthy or unhealthy. She has to learn to trust herself and her own instincts, but that’s easier than it sounds. She has to believe—after many years of being a believarexic. Using her trademark dark humor and powerful emotion, J. J. Johnson tells an inspiring story that is based on her own experience of being hospitalized for an eating disorder as a teenager. The innovative format—which tells Jennifer’s story through blank verse and prose, with changes in tense and voice, and uses forms, workbooks, and journal entries—mirrors the protagonist’s progress toward a healthy body and mind.

Bryony is constantly eclipsed by her all-singing, all dancing mum and talented sisters: otherwise known as The Singing Bells (who have to be the stars of the show the whole time). All Bryony wants is to find her own niche - maybe it's being a top-notch skater. However, before she's begun to enjoy them, she has to send back her new, state-of-the-art skates to pay for her sisters' costumes for TV Family Star Turns. They think Bryony's sacrifice is worth it: the family might win £50,000. Poor Bryony - and it's not much fun at school, either. In their end of term play, she's cast as the Ugly Ducking (when really she wants to be the swan). Can the family's fortunes - and Bryony's - turn in time to give her the chance to strut her stuff?
