Hunter Ellis Marya Hornbacher is experienced with the hardships of bulimia at the young age of around 8 or 9. At first, it was just a simple case of binge once a week, then throw it all up. This was started by both her parents, as each one represented a different type of eating disorder, her dad the eater, and her mom the starver. Her body matured at a pace faster than other children, so she started to feel like she stuck out, as if her body was the enemy, how she needed to be thin, and have no areas sticking out. She felt as if she had a hole in her from a young age, and since her parents equated food with love, she did the same thing. In the story, Marya details childhood and personality factors that may have had a role in the development of her disorder. She also writes about the progression of her bulimia and her transition to anorexia. Marya describes her plummet to her lowest point in her struggle with anorexia, a time when she is eating almost nothing and weighs only 52 pounds. Finally, Marya describes the circumstances that finally convince her to check herself into a hospital for treatment. It was that simple . . .So begins Marya Hornbacher's heart-wrenching account of her through-the-looking-glass love affair with hunger, drugs, sex, and death. "I look back on my life," she writes, "the way one watches a badly scripted action flick, sitting at the edge of the seat, bursting out, 'No, no, don't open that door!'" But open that door she does; and we follow her through, into a wonderfully scripted, alarming, all-American story. At the age of five, precociously intelligent and imaginative, Marya returned from a ballet class convinced that she was fat. By age nine she was secretly bulimic. When she was fifteen she pledged allegiance to anorexia, taking great pride in her capacity for self-starvation. Wasted is based in Minnesota in the '80s. It details her from when she is a young girl up to when she receives treatment for her illness. *Publisher of this book is HarperCollins Publishers

*Published in 1998 People say this book is really raw, and was one of the best that they ever seen to first hand accounts of people that suffer from disordered eating. Jennifer
