    Mindy has an eating disorder, but she is so used to it she can not see what is going on. She over eats, she throws up and moves on. She sees herself as fat, while those around her don't see that. And this goes on until she takes a bite of a magic candy bar which sends her back ...

    A bit rushed and disjointed at times; made it difficult to get into. I get what she was trying to do here, just didn't work for me. Positive note: The art is AMAZING and a large portion of my rating is just for the illustrations. Thanks to NetGalley & BOOM! Studios for my ...

    This was a really powerful story about a girl who deals with body dysmorphia and an eating disorder. But it?s also about her relationship with herself and those around her. It?s about self-love and how you allow others to treat you even when they think they have your best interest ...

    I don't even know how to put into words just how much this graphic novel meant to me. A story about eating disorders and body dysmorphia, two things I can relate far too well to, written so thoughtfully by someone who has lived it and understands it ? all of that, combined with ...

    I read this all in one sitting and completely devoured it. I related SO hard to the main character's struggles with body positivity and I am just so glad that this comic exists. I will say, if you're at all sensitive to or triggered by disordered eating and/or purging, this i...

    This book isn't what I was expecting. But that's okay. Not every book has to be what I'm expecting. It's about a 27-year-old woman named Mindy who is chubby and has low self-esteem because of it. Even though men seem to like her, she has friends, and she supports he...
