Description - Kid Rex by Laura Moisin
Kid Rex is the story of one woman's struggle to overcome anorexia. After knowing other friends with anorexia and being baffled by their behavior Moisin suddenly found herself prone to the same disease, not eating at all and going weeks at a time taking in nothing but water and the occasional black coffee. She learns how to deceive the therapists her worried family sends her to, giving them all of the symptoms of depression so they'll misdiagnose her and let her continue to be anorexic. Kid Rex is a book about hope, and looking to oneself and to those around you to help get out from under the
hold of such a dreadful and powerful disease. This book is written for people who are also suffering from anorexia to let them know they're not alone, but Moisin never takes on a know-it-all tone.
