As Olivia, a sixteen-year-old anorexic high school girl who is fixated on becoming the impossible perfection of airbrushed magazine models, encounters small town prying and a tighter-than-comfortable rental house, she escapes through her art and is finally led to the answers she was running from all along. Original.

Moody

Her baggy clothes and exhaustive calorie scrutiny can't cover up the fact that she's allowing her body to wither away. 16-year-old Olivia's escape becomes her art. And her goal becomes the impossible perfection of airbrushed magazine models.


Pressurized family dynamics and a dysfunctional church experience force 16-year-old Olivia to seek her own reality. For her self-image as a thinker, painter, and older sister, Olivia determines who she thinks she ought to be.

Her baggy clothes and exhaustive calorie scrutiny can't cover up the fact that she is allowing her body to wither away. As Olivia encounters small town prying and a tighter-than-comfortable rental house, her escape becomes her art. And her goal becomes the impossible perfection of airbrushed magazine models.

Feeling For Bones is Olivia's story as her struggles become more than physical and she is finally led to the answers she was running from all along.

This story opens up a window to the thought processes and struggles of teen and college-aged women who struggle with eating disorders. Young women will find a friend who thinks like they do. And mothers will find a compatriot in the battle to help their daughters deal with body image.
