Bethany Pierce writes beautifully and honestly from the perspective of a sixteen year old preacher's daughter who has anorexia. Some say it reads like a memoir. I'd say it reads like a poem. When I found myself re-reading to capture the images she wanted to convey, I was glad I did. I now better understand the mind of a hurting young woman who eventually hears the voice of Jesus over her own. Read the book. It will change you.
