Losing it by Sandy Mckay

Longacre Press15 Year old Johanna is in hospital – she has an eating disorder.  Her anorexia has reached crisis point and writing letters to her friend Issy is the only thing that is keeping Johanna sane. 

This book is the letters between Johanna & Issy, Johanna letters to her missing mum and her diary. 

I give this book a rating of 9 out of 10
