From amazon: “I ate and ate and ate in the hopes that if I made myself big, my body would be safe. I buried the girl I had been because she ran into all kinds of trouble. I tried to erase every memory of her, but she is still there, somewhere. . . . I was trapped in my body, one I made but barely recognized or understood but of my own making. I was miserable, but I was safe.”

This was the book we read for our Food For Thought group at our church.

This was a hard book to read so glad we read in a group slowly. Mostly we felt for Roxane but sometimes we just wanted to shake her. I hope in writing this book, she will get some peace.
