A memoir on an eating disorder
Add to Wish List
We’re all hungry—hungry to look good, feel worthy, be loved,
and fit in. Our hungers are deep and insatiable. We try to
feel full by using food, alcohol, drugs, sex, relationships,
careers, or money. No matter what we look like or where we
came from, we all share the same intense need to fill up on
life, but not many of us know how.
A Very Hungry Girl chronicles the journey of Jessica Weiner,
who spent most of her life hungering to be someone else. She
was so desperate to be accepted and valued that she spiraled
into an eating disorder, experiencing the attendant lack of
self-esteem that ruled—and almost ruined—her life.
This compelling book relates Jessica’s very personal story,
and also captures her unique persona as she travels the
country as a performer and motivational speaker listening to
thousands of other people’s stories. It also presents
valuable and concrete tools that you can use to fill up on
life... and enjoy the full, meaningful existence you deserve!
