I found myself thinking about this novel long after it was over – the author does an amazing job of putting you inside the head of a binge-and-purge bulimic young woman struggling with her body, her career (I would never want to be an influencer!), her relationships with people and food – all of which are seriously messed up. The descriptions of the Vineyard are lovely – I live here and it is a place of restoration and healing. Great, quick read — I am left with newfound empathy for those who struggle with eating disorders.
I kept getting annoyed with the main character because she seemed a little whiny. The trauma from her mom’s death and other childhood experiences was deep and well written. I loved the supporting characters at the retreat in her cabin, they made the story even better. I could have done without the sketchiness of the main leader of the retreat – seemed like the author was reaching for suspense that didn’t make sense.
This novel centers around her journey with Bulimia and dealing with her eating disorder – i thought the topic was handled well
I’ve never been bulimic so I thank you for explaining the mind tricks this disease pulls. Ava’s journey is amazing. What she goes through is brutal and heart wrenching. You have a gift I envy, being able to bring a character to life, uniquely individual. Thank you. I truly enjoyed this book.
Very good and enjoyable, I really liked it, it had a very interesting plot and hooked me in! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good emotion evoking story. Full is a good book to read during the summer and I am looking forward to reading Julia Spiros’ other book Someone Else’s Secret.
An interesting look at the “life” of an influencener & the real life struggles that social media places on the young girls in society. As the mom of a 9 year old daughter, I see the types of posts and pictures that kids see and assume that is what real-life is. Great book, love the plot
