Grace Bowman lived a perfectly ordinary life as a pretty, popular teenager until one day, aged eighteen, she went on a diet - and didn't stop. Then couldn't stop. Her weight plummeted to less than six stone. Starving herself had become an addiction. A poignant account of surviving the urge to self-destruct, and growing into a shape of her own, Thin exposes the secrets and dispels the myths that surround anorexia nervosa. An extraordinary account of one young woman's courage to face up to her illness, it is also an inspirational story that reaches out to others lost in the wilderness - those still suffering and those who just want to understand. 'Bowman describes her descent into anorexia with clinical skill; if you haven't understood it before, you will now... brave, revealing, and shocking' William Leith, Guardian
