Summary

Sixteen-year-old Pea looks normal, but she has a secret: she has Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, which means she canít eat very much because nutritious foods frighten her. Having ARFID is like having a monster inside of her, one that dictates what she can eat, what she does and who she socializes with. This monster is growing and controlling more than just her food issues Ė itís causing anxiety, depression and thoughts that she doesnít want to have. When she falls crazy-mad in love with Ben, she hides her disorder from him, pretending that sheís fine. At first, everything really does feel like itís getting better with him around, so she stops taking her anxiety and depression medication. And that's when the monster really takes over her life. Just as everything seems lost and hopeless, Pea finds in her family, best friend, and Ben the support and strength that she needs to learn that her eating disorder doesnít have to control her. SAD PERFECT is a heart-wrenching debut from Stephanie Elliot.
