Seventeen-year-old Stevie is trapped. In her life. In her body. And now in an eating-disorder treatment center on the dusty outskirts of the New Mexico desert. Life in the center is regimented and intrusive, a nightmare come true. Nurses and therapists watch Stevie at mealtime, accompany her to the bathroom, and challenge her to eat the foods she's worked so hard to avoid. Her dad has signed her up for sixty days of treatment. But what no one knows is that Stevie doesn't plan to stay that long. There are only twenty-seven days until the anniversary of her brother Josh's death -- the death she caused. And if Stevie gets her way, there are only twenty-seven days until she too will end her life.

I keep coming back to this book. It keeps me intrigued and interested every time I read it. Not only to see Stevie go through the extremely difficult process of recovery, but also discovering her past more and more as the story goes on. Very good story.
