Alice in the Looking Glass: A Mother and Daughter's Experience of Anorexia

by Jo and Alice Kingsley
£7.99   paperback  Judy Piatkus Publishers (2006)

Alice in the Looking Glass: A Mother and Daughter At ten, Alice was an easy-going, free-spirited child with a tremendous sense of humour, adored by everyone who knew her. At eleven, she started to develop her 'rigmaroles' - little rituals which grew into severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. At fourteen, these rituals turned into anorexia.
 
Alice in the Looking Glass is a raw, emotional and ultimately optimistic memoir about one family's battle with anorexia. Alice's mother Jo tells of the despair, guilt and anger and, as the mother of a much-loved child, sheer terror she endured during the nine years of their lives. Alongside, Alice writes vividly and honestly about herself, her illness, her treatment and recovery, other sufferers she met, and her relationship with her mother, friends and two sisters.
 
By opening their hearts and writing this book, Alice and Jo wish to pass on their experiences and to share all their doubts, failures, anzieties and eventually some successes in the hope of supporting other families going through the same trauma.
