Read Lighter than My Shadow Online Free - Like most kids, Katie was a picky eater. She'd sit at the table in silent protest, hide uneaten toast in her bedroom, listen to parental threats that she'd have to eat it for breakfast.
But in any life a set of circumstance can collide, and normal behavior might soon shade into something sinister, something deadly.
Lighter Than My Shadow is a hand-drawn story of struggle and recovery, a trip into the black heart of a taboo illness, an exposure of those who are so weak as to prey on the vulnerable, and an inspiration to anybody who believes in the human power to endure towards happiness.

A poignant look into the author's battle with an eating disorder and as a victim of sexual assault. This felt more directed to YA than Ink in Water: An Illustrated Memoir, as the protagonist takes us from early childhood until adulthood. I felt that Katie Green's story is just as candid as Lacy J...

This hit me hard!
I have never struggled with an eating disorder of any kind. I did work with a girl who struggled with anorexia and it is a hard thing to look at, knowing that there isn't much you can do. The fight was in her head and she didn't win. Reading about Katie who's fight did have a po...

A graphic novel ( and a hefty one at that) detailing the writer's struggle with eating disorders, sexual abuse and mental well-being doesn't sound like much of an easy going read. It isn't; it's a raw work, emotionally exhausting at times, though very effecting. Seeing often intangible emotions...

Beautiful, moving, and completely relatable even if you haven't suffered from anorexia, binge eating disorder or abuse at the hands of someone you trusted. Reading the acknowledgements almost made me cry. The art was beautiful and I loved the way Katie Green utilized a variety of panels on each p...
