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 couple we...

I don't have an eating disorder; I think I'm fortunate to have a fast metabolism that's why I don't have a problem with diet or being stressed with weight. Probably it's the exact opposite for me. If anorexics thinks th...

I went into this graphic novel knowing nothing about it; it was on the "read now" list on NetGalley, and I was in the mood for a quick graphic novel. (Joke's on me - this graphic novel is over 500 pages long!)
Essentially, Lighter Than My Shadow is a story about eating disorders, body dysmorphia,...

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...

I requested this book on Netgalley in return for an honest review
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...

This is the most powerful graphic memoir I have ever read. I connected with this story more than I want to admit.The author was very brave to share the intimate details of her personal struggles in such a public manner.
The simplistic artwork fit the weight of subject matter perfectly. T...
