In this graphic novel dealing with anorexia, young Anna--pressured by media, friends, the workplace, personal relationships, and fashion trends--descends into a seemingly unending cycle of misery. And whenever she tries to climb out of the abyss, her own personal demon, Tyranny, is there to push her back in. The contest seems uneven, and it might be except for one thing: Anna's strength of character.
