Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot

Into the Wild

Read Sad Perfect Online Free - The story of a teen girl's struggle with Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder and how love helps her on the road to recovery.

Sixteen-year-old Pea looks normal, but she has a secret: she has Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID). It is like having a monster inside of her, one that not only dictates what she can eat, but also causes anxiety, depression, and thoughts that she doesn’t want to have. When she falls crazy-mad in love with Ben, she hides her disorder from him, pretending that she’s fine. At first, everything really does feel like it’s 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, and in Ben, the support and strength she needs to learn that her eating disorder doesn’t have to control her.

Update: I just wanted to place this review at the top of mind to let you all know that another reviewer was very harmed by the rep in this book. I think it's important that while I'll continue to love this book and what it's done for me, I give you guys the opportunity to view someone else's expe...

This is a book that should not be read by those who currently have or have had an eating disorder (ED). It's not just that the depiction of those who have EDs is bad, it's that the depiction is legitimately dangerous to those of us who do/have had an ED. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT put this book int...

There are readers, particularly those who have dealt with eating disorders (specifically anorexia and bulimia), who find this book triggering. So please be warned and take care of yourself. I really, really wanted to like Sad Perfect, but unfortunately, it just… didn’t work for me. I had high hope...

*Trigger warning* What I love about this website and the book community, in general, is being able to learn more from others. I want to thank a commenter who explain how she disagreed with me. How she felt this was cliche and hatred towards other types of EDs. I can see where she is coming from an...

I read about 50 pages into this book (~15%) and stumbled upon a disturbing review about it, as well as the possible effects it would have on potential readers. With that, I'm not wasting anymore time on this harmful, damaging book. I originally requested this because it seemed like a hopeful story...

Holy god this book is awful. I'm gonna try to sleep on it to write a review that isn't just angry yelling, but I can't make any promises. -------------- This review was originally published on the blog www.amidsummernightsread.com A couple disclaimers before I get started. Jessica originally agreed...

Pea is quite convinced a monster li...
