WHAT I LOST
"A luminous, bracingly real story about the struggle to tell the truth in our own heads, and to make it be a truth that helps us love, forgive, eat, and hope every day."
-Laura McNeal, National Book Award Finalist
"WHAT I LOST is such an honest and searing account of one girl’s attempt to overcome anorexia, it reads less like a novel and more like a memoir. Haunting and hopeful and immensely readable, this book is one I will not soon forget. Ballard is a great new voice in YA."
-Julie Buxbaum, New York Times bestselling author of TELL ME THREE THINGS
"Engrossing and heartfelt...Readers will root for the novel's likable main character and gain some understanding of the complexity of her illness at the same time."
