This is an autobiographical account that will at once break your heart and fill it with hope. When Elizabeth’s family starts to fall apart, so does she. Unable to cope with the pressures of family, school and a budding sports career, she turns to her body to take out her growing anxieties and frustrations, eventually forming a life-threatening case of anorexia and bulimia. After breaking down, Elizabeth is hospitalised, drugged, depressed - and getting closer and closer to death. But through the support of family and friends, especially her mother, Maree, who devotes herself to saving her daughter’s life, Elizabeth manages to pull herself back from the brink of death - to find Eli, the person she always wanted to be, waiting for her on the other side. Now only twenty-four, Eli writes about her life with an insight far beyond her years, and in a way that will reach inside the hearts of young women everywhere.
