Bright, popular, pretty and successful, Grace Bowman had the world at her feet. So what drove her to starve herself nearly to death at the age of 18? And what, more importantly, made her stop?

A grippingly honest account of life with anorexia nervosa, A Shape of My Own is Grace's hearbreaking, shocking and, finally, inspirational memoir. An extraordinary story, it is also a common one - is there a woman in the western world who has a normal relationship with food? A compulsive read, essential for anyone hoping to understand more about eating disorders and overcoming addiction.

Review:

Poignant and timely…the most honest account of the illness yet published ( Glamour)

Bowman describes her descent into anorexia with clinical skill; if you haven't understood it before, you will now ... brave, revealing, and shocking (William Leith Guardian)

A brilliant new memoir ( Sunday Telegraph)

Powerfully written, beautifully articulated, gripping. Bowman emerges as stubborn, brilliant, vulnerable, talented and a superb writer. She has readability by the bucketful ( Independent on Sunday)

'Moving … uniquely eloquent … a must-read' Elle 'Dignified [and] lucid ... dedicated to debunking myths' Daily Mail 'A truly memorable account ... Very powerful' **** OK
