I have read wasted many many times, first read it when I was about 17 I think and I still have a copy now and could pick it up and read it again.

I see she has another book Madness, has anyone read it? Is it any good?

I read that years ago, when recovering from an eating disorder, I thought it was wonderfully written, though incredibly sad.

I didn't know she had written another, I may have to get it.

I read it too years ago and found it incredibly moving. It was a 'never heard of it but looks interesting' book I got for about 50p from a charity shop - it turned out to be a complete gem. I've never had an eating disorder but quite a number of people close to me have and reading this book affected me quite a lot. I've just added the madness one to my wishlist on Amazon so thank you!

I was quite surprised to find out she was still alive, just from the way the book was at the end I really kept expecting her to have died. I am really curious to know more about her NOW, how she is and how she copes with life post ED.
