Summary Fifteen-year-old Jennifer has to force her family to admit she needs help for her eating disorder. But when her parents sign her into the Samuel Tuke Center, she knows it's a terrible mistake. The facility's locked doors, cynical nurses, and punitive rules are a far cry from the peaceful, supportive environment she'd imagined. In order to be discharged, Jennifer must make her way through the strict treatment program -- as well as harrowing accusations, confusing half-truths and startling insights. She is forced to examine her relationships, both inside and outside the hospital. She must relearn who to trust and decide for herself what "healthy" really means.
