It is estimated that thirty million girls, boys, women, and men in the country will experience an eating disorder in their lifetime. This volume shares critical information about treatment and prevention. Through statistics, true stories of survivors, and more, this book helps young readers feel informed, less alone, and more equipped to seek treatment.
