everybody should know the truth about bulimia and anorexia and that is what this movie does. Millions of girls have bulimia and are keeping it secret.
This movie is about two girls Lexie and Jennifer. They both starve themselves. Lexie gets help;jennefer does not. Things happen, however, in the movie that lexi goes back to not eatting. I never knew anybody that threw up their food, but i do know someone who starved their self at one time- me. if you read this comment and you also have or is in the process of starving yourself like i did email me and i can tell you what made me decide that life was worth living.
