Shape of My Own Summary

Shape of My Own by Grace Bowman

A bright, beautiful teenager, popular with her peers, Grace Bowman lived a perfectly ordered, ordinary life. Until one day, aged 18, she went on a diet. That didn't stop. Then couldn't stop. That trapped her in a secret world of eating-related happiness and unhappiness'. And saw her weight swiftly drop to below six stone. A grippingly honest account of life with anorexia nervosa, "A Shape Of My Own" is Grace's heartbreaking, shocking and, finally, inspirational story. A memoir that is in part insider's expose and in part survivor's testimony, it explains the struggle for self-discovery, and chronicles the devastating battles waged for control over mind and body. Breaking secrets, Grace shatters the myths surrounding this widely misunderstood illness, helping those bound within the rules of anorexia to find a way out, and those on the outside to understand more. "A Shape Of My Own" also has resonance beyond the world of eating disorders. For in daring to tell the truth, Grace reveals her extraordinary story to be a common one, reflected in the shape of many of our lives. And the powerful insights she brings to overcoming addiction make this an invaluable narrative for all those looking to find hope and renewal in the acceptance of change and growth.
