"Last night I asked my mom some questions about bulimia and anorexia. I thought for sure she would know what I was doing to myself. How could a mother not know the terrible things her daughter was doing?" "Tara seems fine these last few days. The questions she asked me the other night scared me. But now I think she's just curious. Maybe one of her friends is having a problem with something." Mother and daughter, living in the same house, yet at times it seems as though they are on different planets. Tara, growing obsessive about the way she looks, feels her mom no longer understands her. Linda, while concerned about the changes her teenage daughter is going through, is focused on making a career for herself as a family therapist. Neither knows how to reverse the terrible path that Tara is heading down. Tara's and Linda's side-by-side diaries of this difficult time, only shared with each other years later, show both sides of their maddening ordeal and inspiring victory to keep their family together. In addition to sharing their actual diaries, Tara and Linda look back on the drama of those years to offer the wisdom and perspective that can only come with hindsight. Craig Johnson, Ph.D., an international leader in the research and treatment of eating disorders, offers useful advice and fascinating commentary on the Rios' story to inform today's families who may be going through similar situations.
User reviews
Amazing book. Powerful story. A great story to read. I totally reacamend it. Loved the book. You need to read it.
I've been battling this horrible disease with my daughter for years. I've never seen a book tackle the subject from such a personal and family-oriented perspective. This is the first book that my daughter actually read and I believe started getting through to her. And I truly connected with Linda, the mother and her struggles watching her daughter and feeling helpless. Sometimes it's helpful just to know another family is going through something similar to you...that you're not alone. I'm so grateful to the Rios for sharing their story with us.
I'm a recovering anorexic who assumed this book would help me relate to the mother and daughter in this book. It was non discriptive, including not even telling how low Tara's weight got, her weeks in treatment, and didn't say how much she lost. They never said she got sick looking or anything related. The rest of the book was complete garbage about how she is doing at home and at school. O yeah, her mother is so naive to even pay attention to how her health was going. " Tara looks kindof blank and sad", says her mother. WELL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT IF YOU'RE A PSCHYATRIST AND HELP HER!!! don't waste you're time and money on this book. it's just not worth it.
I purchased this for my wife--she's a psychotherapist whose clients are 15--21 year-olds. She'd run across a copy belonging to a colleague and she found it both interesting and insightful. As to her satisfaction now that she possesses a copy I cannot say--we've not spoken of the book since it arrived.
I was attracted to this book when I saw it on the "New Releases" shelf at the library. I could tell it hadn't been read, and the title appealed to the voyeuristic part of me that enjoys peering into people's (published) diaries. I found the book to be extremely insightful and interesting, as it beautifully and honestly depicted the inner workings of a teenage daughter and her mother. I loved how the book was frank and blunt, (as I suppose it had to be, being a real diary) and it truly opened my eyes to the trials and tribulations that a mother faces while watching her daughter go through sickness and coming of age.
I would recommend this book to any female I know.
Without trivializing the sufferings of the Rio family, I honestly feel like this book offers no insight to the complexity of anorexia nervosa. Tara's eating disorder - which was not anorexia at all, but bulimorexia - was a relatively short ordeal, and she did not hide it from her family like many sick young women do (or like the excerpt from the back of the book would have the prospective reader believe she did). Introspection is nihil - rarely expressed is sentiment deeper than "I feel fat". Moreover, the overall tone is self-centered, as the authors never speculate upon the epidemic nature of the disease; I call this sort of self-congratulatory, non-academic memoir "victimization literature." For these reasons and more, I cannot recommend this title as a quality account of an eating disorder.
This book is the first I have read to hear from the mother's side of an eating disorder. However, it is a bit unrealistic in the world of eating disorders. The daughter developed bulimia, and the mother had enough insight to get her treatment before it was terribly out of control. The whole episode from the "onset" to "recovery" was less than 2 years. It's great that she is fully recovered, but it is unrealistic in eating disorders that have plagued women for 5, 10, 20 years. Don't expect any enlightenment or answers from this book. Like I said, it is only good to read the mother's viewpoint while this "eating disorder" suffered. Look elsewhere for answers on true, long-term eating disorders.
Were they kidding? This kid developed anorexia because HER MOM WORKED? Well, she should slit her throat if she HAD A JOB. This book was difficult to get into. I felt that this kid was really spoiled if her mother was making her breakfast at the age of seventeen. Her mother seemed to do alot for her family and this child did not appear to be grateful for it at all. This book was undeveloped, and the reasons for the problem were not fully explored or explained.
