Brave Girl Eating
Transcript of Brave Girl Eating
The fight Kitty had with herself while fighting the eating disorder. She knew eating would help her get better, but every time she ate, she felt like she was getting fat and couldn't handle the horrible feeling.
Brown wrote this book to encourage others who suffer from an eating disorder, and inspire them that there is hope for them to get better. She states at the beginning that she doesn't want to state any numbers or details that might be interpreted as "pro-bulimia" or "pro-anorexia". She understands that people who severely ill often read memoirs as a guideline to stay sick- "as 'thinspiration'" (Brown xvi).
"Family is always there for you, even when it feels like no one else is." Kitty didn't have a lot of friends because most people didn't fully understand what she was going through,
There's always a light at the end of the tunnel.
How much detail has the author gone to explain the ideas?
Brown went into great detail throughout the story. She told it just like she had experienced it; not only did she tell what was happening, she also told what she was thinking. She was so descriptive I felt like I was there experiencing it too.
Significance of the title
The title represents the struggle Kitty, Brown's daughter, had to go through while she was trying to overcome anorexia. Kitty had one of the most severe levels of anorexia, where she fears the littlest amount of food. It took a lot of courage for her to eat the amount of food that was necessary each day in order for her to get better.

The ongoing struggle Brown had with Kitty. The "monster" inside of Kitty made it very difficult for Brown to reason with her, even over the littlest of things.
"Things always get better in the end." Brown and her whole family didn't bevlieve Kitty would be able to get over anorexia. Her and her husband didn't think they would be able to find a doctor, or get the medicine needed, to help Kitty.
