Convince us to read the book: Jennifer is a sweet girl who has gotten very good at hiding her condition, so when she goes to her parents for help, they don't believe her but schedule an appointment anyway and they go and the doctor agrees that Jenny has a condition. She stays at a recovery place and really does things right for herself. She grows and it's beautiful. 
Memorable or Forgettable: Jennifer admitted she had a problem and she wanted to get help. She was doing things for herself and that was great.  She decided she wanted something and worked to get it. 
Cover: I thought the cover was simple but meaningful. The basic color is perfect for catching the eye and there's a cute design on the front that lets you know it's a heartfelt story. 
Age Range: 12 through 13
Quality: 4Q - Better than most
Popularity: 4P - Broad general teen appeal
Annotation: Jennifer is addicted to binging, purging, drinking. She wants to stop.  She wants people to see she needs help and, furthermore, to receive that help.
