Some brief overview of book

A searing yet ultimately uplifting young adult novel about a teenage girl's recovery from anorexia What sixteen-year-old Elizabeth has lost so far forty pounds, four jean sizes, a boyfriend, and her peace of mind. As a result, shes finally a size zero. Shes also the newest resident at Wallingfield, a treatment center for girls like hergirls with eating disorders.

Elizabeth is determined to endure the program so she can go back home, where she plans to start restricting her food intake again. Shes pretty sure her mom, who has her own size-zero obsession, needs treatment as much as she does. Maybe even more.

Then Elizabeth begins receiving mysterious packages. Are they from her ex-boyfriend, a secret admirer, or someone playing a cruel trick? What I Lost is an eloquent debut novel by Alexandra Ballard that rings with authenticity as it follows Elizabeths journey to taking an active role in her eating disorder recovery, hoping to get back all that she lost.

Praise for What I Lost "Readers will root for the novels likable main character and gain some understanding of the complexity of her illness at the same time." Kirkus Reviews "Through Elizabeths painful uphill battle, newcomer Ballard skillfully illustrates that although unhealthy eating habits may start as a choice, an eating disorder is a complicated illness that cannot be battled without support and vigilance." Publishers Weekly
