    eBook J.J. Johnson ✓ Believarexic eBook í ✓ believarexic epub, Believarexic EpubAlmost all fictionalized tales of eating disorders are pretty crummy The characters are flat the underlying causes of the disease stereotypical fear of growing up need for control traumatic event etc and the course of treatment is highly unrealistic somehow the sufferer previously vehemently opposed to health is suddenly hungry and magically eats again Believarexic is none of these things Reading through the author's bio it is clear this is because she has drawn heavily upon the journals she kept during her own struggle with anorexia In fact some of her entries are near verbatim to the novel's text Unlike every other character in an eating disorder book Jennifer actually wants to recover Yes she struggles yes she has temptations no she

    eBook J.J. Johnson ✓ Believarexic eBook í ✓ believarexic epub, Believarexic EpubThis came to me because I was on a panel with JJ and she was knock out fabulous I knew I had to read her book And I am so glad I did This is a true novel or a fictionalized memoir following the author's fifteen year old self through a stay in an eating disorders unit The process through the clinic forms the low key but high stake plot and the effect is likewise low key but powerful transformation friendship trust self acceptance hope But to tell you the truth I just enjoyed my trip back to being my own teenaged self in the 1980s complete with mixed

    eBook J.J. Johnson ✓ Believarexic eBook í ✓ believarexic epub, Believarexic Epub I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I have very ambivalent feelings about this book I think books like this are very important I think young girls and parents need to be educated about the very real damage and health risks that eating disorders cause and I think society needs to now how important is is for girls to be taught the vital importance of having a healthy body image and living a healthy lifestyleAnd I think this book did a fairly adeuate job of doing that However I must admit that I had uite a bit of difficulty connecting to the MC and her journey Because the book started with Jennifer reuesting to be hospitalized and the

    eBook J.J. Johnson ✓ Believarexic eBook í ✓ believarexic epub, Believarexic EpubI read a bunch of books about young women with eating disorders and this one mysteriously appeared in the mail at work To this day I still have no idea how I got it The book is partial memoir partial novel and gives an extremely realistic and well written look at a 15 year old's journey to recovery Jennifer volunteers to put herself into a mental institution after she sees a commercial for getting help for an eating disorder Her parents don't' seem to believe she needs help but decide to go along with the plan to have her checked in From there she begins treatment and encounters a memorable cast of characters that include fellow patients nurses and psychologists The book is extremely well written and you feel that you are going

    eBook J.J. Johnson ✓ Believarexic eBook í ✓ believarexic epub, Believarexic EpubI received a free copy of BELIEVAREXIC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewGrade CAt age fifteen during the late 1980s Jennifer is admitted to the Eating Disorder Unit EDU of a psych hospital for bulimarexia a combination of anorexia and bulimia She becomes a model patient cries and recovers in record time Insurance reimbursement for inpatient psych treatment has changes dramatically in the 25 years since writer JJ Johnson's hospitalization where she remained for ten weeks In 2015 she's be very lucky to be approved for 28 days I'm not sure why she decided to write her account as a YA novel rather than memoir If she wanted to go the fictionalized route I don't know why she didn't update to appeal to today's youth The cultural references are dated I wonder how many teens are going to need to google VHS and cassette tapes I doubt they'll know what an After School Special is I'm sure kids obsessed with all things eating disorder will try the movies Johnson mentioned on YouTub

    eBook J.J. Johnson ✓ Believarexic eBook í ✓ believarexic epub, Believarexic Epub I received an e arc of this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewThere are a lot of books about girls and women with eating disorders nowadays I find most of them having flat characters an unrealistic storyline way too much glamorized and romanticized however believarexic was totally different Like Jennifer our main character I’ve had to deal with an eating disorders on the age of 15 as well Unlike other books about this subject I could relate to the main character and she felt real It felt like I was on journey to recovery with Jennifer instead of seeing her on her journey I think it’s very important for teenagers but also parents and teachers and adults in general to read books like this Even if you can’t completely relate to the main character because you haven’t experienced something similar you will still be on
