Documents Laura's descent from a healthy, attractive teenager into one starving herself and on the verge of death, obsessed with exercise, unable to sleep, solitary, and secretive. Follows her story from the point of view of her parents and best friend. Anti-depressants and psychiatry provided the impetus to begin the assent to normality. Laura concludes, "No good comes from silence. Living with an eating disorder is a trauma; surviving it is a triumph!"
