About the book:

Struggling for years with eating disorders, in and out of treatment facilities, Eireann Corrigan is teetering on the brink of no return when her high school boyfriend attempts suicide. Suddenly, Eireann is on the other side of the high-railed hospital bed, and on an entirely unexpected path to recovery herself. In this witty, smart, and heart-rending poetry memoir, author Eireann Corrigan takes a breathtakingly honest look at herself as she wends her way through profoundly difficult times. Her complicated relationship with her sweetheart is captured in the second-person prosaic verses scattered throughout, as well as in the interviews, presumably with a therapist, that fill in many of the blanks left by the sometimes cryptic first-person narrative. We are invited inside Eireann's head to try with her to understand the bewildering chain of events and emotions that led to such chapter heads as "She Tries Out for Varsity Recklessness and Only Makes JV," and "She Never Claimed Reliable Narrator Status," and "Eventually, They Had a Sex Life." (Ages 14 and older) --Emilie Coulter
