We are a married couple who love listening to audio books, luckily we like mostly the same things. Rosie is severely ill & bedbound.
This is the second book of the 'series' and its one of my favourites, don't get me wrong I love them all but this one was especially good. The other books in the series are; Girls in Love, Girls in Tears & Girls out late, and I own them all.
I loved this one especially because I really feel the author knew what she was writing about, she had done her research or maybe even gone through it herself because it all felt so real. When I was listening it was like I could of easily been Ellie and not many books can capture this subject as well.
As you know the book is about Ellie and her struggles with food, dieting and wanting to be thin. You could say she had the starting of an eating disorder and it was all done very well. You see I too suffered from this problem, I am now recovered (well as much as you can be because often all those thoughts don't just disappear) and as I was listening to this audio book it was like going back in time to when I was going through it which is why I think the author has done a brilliant job.
Really great audio book, I'd highly recommend it. Each book in the series are like separate stories so don't worry if you don't have the others as it wont effect your enjoyment of the book. Obviously I recommend you get each book as you'll enjoy them all but what I am really saying is don't let not having all the other books put you off getting this one, I'm sure you'll enjoy it as I still do and I'm in my twenties (my husband even likes it also and he is older than me!). I would say along with the other books in this series its not for young children, more teenagers and upwards.
