Room Empty by Sarah Mussi

Room Empty

Sarah Mussi

Love, friendship and the lack of it, is the sometimes tragic background to teenage anorexic, Dani's, frank account of her possibility of recovery. I guarantee that Dani will infuriate you, but you will also be cheering for her and her beloved Fletcher all the way.

Extract

'He did the right thing,' Tony says.
How can leaving your recovery programme unfinished, staying unrecovered for ever be the right thing? How can going back to where he came from, to all the pressures and the pain, be the goddam, effing RIGHT THING?
