The face of anorexia is not a glossy model in a perfume ad. It's a starving animal, circling the empty cupboards, blank-eyed and vacant. It's a face frozen in a rictus grin, mouthing lies. "I'm fine," it says. "Everything is under control."

"I have always felt hungry," says Emma Scrivener. "Not just for food, but for everything: from money to recognition. I'm a human chasm, a vortex of insatiable longing."

Rescued from a disorder that nearly killed her, Emma is now passionate about warning others about the dark and hidden world she inhabited for too long.

Harrowing, heart-breaking, human, and humourous, this book will grip you from start to finish.
