Tidier probably lengthy review to come But it s importantWorth reading but has its issues though they don t come from the book itself so much as its implications In short and this goes for both the documentary and accompanying bookPositive Great photography great concept gives a voice to women who may not have been given one otherwise Enlightening to those who may not be aware of these disorders and what they are like though not as enlightening as it should ve beenNegative Unintentionally highlights the many glaring issues with the mental healthcare system while presenting them like they are good things Several of the people mentioned in the docbook seem like they were not helped at all and the center treated them like prisoners than patients an ongoing problem in American mental healthcare since its beginningsGeneral 35

Thin author Lauren Greenfield

Year old Brittany who is convinced that being thin is the only way to gain acceptance among her peers; Alisa a divorced mother of two whose hatred of her body is manifested in her relentless compulsion to purge; Shelly who has been battling anorexia for six years and has had a feeding tube surgically implanted in her stomach; as well as many oth. I think that this book would really appeal to teenage girls seeing as anorexia and body image are such common problems with this age group The pictures are gripping and the way in which the story is told through first person accounts of anorexic girls and their journal entries is not only believable but also very powerful The book is a uick read I read it all in one evening and I think it would also appeal to a reluctant reader the images definitely help to break up the textThe book address self confidence coming to terms with your own body image and maturing Many of the women in the book are anorexic because of abusive relationships or sexual encounters in their past I think it takes someone with a strong stomach to deal with the content of the book but that the message is powerful So many young women today need to be told that they don t have to look like the stick figure women in popular media to be healthy and attractive The book is definitely credible As I mentioned earlier the entire story is told through journal entries photos and first person accounts of the ladies own battles with anorexia While many of their thought processes are difficult to believe anorexia is a mental disorder it is impossible not to find their voices authentic I would promote this book to teenage girls I don t know that boys would be very interested in it by showing them a number of pictures The images themselves are very gripping and I think that many might want to read the book for that reason alone I think that this non fiction account could also be linked to a similar fiction novel like Laurie Halse Anderson s newly published Wintergirls 4 4P S

    Thin is a conflicting book for me A photographic essay set at the Renfrew Centre and curated by Lauren Greenfield presents a series of trauma narratives intended to highlight how eating disorders do not discriminate Much has been made of the access Greenfield was afforded to the lives of patients and the trust she earned Excerpts from journals were selected as were some collages but it really should be noted these were carefully selected to

    Really powerful and devastating book that explores Eating Disorders and the girls suffering from them It follows four main girls but also tells the stories of many many other women being treated at Renfrew an inpatient treatment centre for people with eating disorders It's a tough book that doesn't gloss over any of the horrors of suffering from an eating disorder but it has heart and really explains the mindset of someo

    A year ago this book would have been heartbreaking and informative while distant and out of reach Now as I have a friend with an eating disorder that went to renfrew the book offers a deeper look into the struggle
