Alice in the Looking Glass: A Mother and Daughter’s Experience of Anorexia

This is a memoir in two parts — Jo Kingsley’s experience of her daughter going through anorexia, and then Alice Kingsley’s take on the same time period. And the recovery aspect was not unrealistically easy or happy; Alife is not completely recovered even at the end of the book, but is managing her illness.

Excellent honest account of the tenacious hold both anorexia and OCD have. Books by Jo Kingsley.

Alice v zrcadle

No trivia or quizzes yet. What struck me most, though, was that although it’s presented as an ultimately hopeful and triumphant story, there’s still so much limitation by the end of it. I would have liked to see more detail of how boarding school helped or hindered her, and how she managed in university — but of course the latter was still in the future when they wrote this. Deanna rated it really liked it Jul 02, The reality is addressed so honestly in this book, all the feelings and experiences that we may be ashamed to admit are written in black and white.

This book was absolutely fantastic – not only did it help me see that I’m not alone or abnormal, but I was also able to read a mother’s point of view on the experience.
