• I found this website to be very reliable because it is a true story from a girl named Shelia, who suffers from an eating disorder. It gave readers useful knowledge such as background information on Shelia, as well as facts, which really helped me connect with Shelia. I also liked the websites use of statistics and the growing problems among tweens.

I knew firsthand what Shelia was thinking and how she was going about her eating disorder. Even though her eating disorder was very troublesome at such a young age, she overcame it, which proved to me that there is hope for anyone to overcome an eating disorder.
