Review:

"Diana Spechler writes like a dream. In "Skinny", she masterfully explores the relationship between food and pain, between love and heartbreak. And what Spechler most magically captures is the elusive feeling of longing. And how, on its other side, we sometimes find what we needed all along."--Laura Dave, author of "The Divorce Party" and "London Is The Best City in America"

From the Back Cover:

After her father's death, twenty-six-year-old Gray Lachmann findsherself compulsively eating. Desperate to stop bingeing, she abandonsher life in New York City for a job at a southern weight-losscamp. There, caught among the warring egos of her devious co-counselor, Sheena; the self-aggrandizing camp director, Lewis; his attractive assistant, Bennett; and a throng of combative teenage campers, she is confronted by acaptivating mystery: her teenage half-sister, Eden, whom Gray never knewexisted. Now, while unraveling her father's lies, Gray must tackle her ownself-deceptions and take control of her body and her life.

Visceral, poignant, and often wickedly funny, Skinny illuminates a youngwoman's struggle to make sense of the link between hunger and emotion, andto make peace with her demons, her body, and herself.
