Waiting on Wednesday: Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot @stephanieelliot @fsgbooks #WaitingOnWednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here is this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

TITLE: Sad Perfect
AUTHOR: Stephanie Elliot
PUBLISHER: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
FORMAT: Hardcover
LENGTH: 320 pages
GENRE: Young Adult, Contemporary
ISBN: 9781524756420
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.

I'm drawn to YA books with characters who struggle with eating disorders, so this one caught my eye. It's the author's YA debut.

  1. I'm not a big contemporary YA fan, but this one does sound like it's going to be a really good read. Thanks for putting it on my radar :)
