Waiting on Wednesday #4: The Disappearing Girl by: Heather Topham Wood

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

I'm waiting on...

The Disappearing Girl by: Heather Topham Wood
Release Day: May 2013
Goodreads Summary: Last year, Kayla’s world imploded. Her beloved father died, leaving her alone with a narcissistic mother who is quick to criticize her daughter’s appearance. During her winter break from college, Kayla’s dangerous obsession with losing weight begins.

Kayla feels like her world changes for the better overnight. Being skinny seems to be the key to the happiness she has desperately been seeking. Her mother and friends shower her with compliments, telling her how fantastic she looks. Kayla is starving, but no one knows it.

Cameron Bennett explodes into Kayla’s life. He’s sexy and kind—he has every quality she has been looking for in a guy. As Cameron grows closer to Kayla and learns of how far she’s willing to go to stay thin, he becomes desperate to save her.

Kayla’s struggles with anorexia and bulimia reach a breaking point and she is forced to confront her body image issues in order to survive. She wonders if Cameron could be the one to help heal her from the pain of her past.

New Adult Contemporary-Ages 17+ due to language and sexual situations.

I really enjoyed Wood's other book, First Visions, so I can't wait to give this one a try. I don't know why but I always enjoy reading books on hard subjects and I can't wait to see how Wood does with this topic.

Did I mention that I love this cover?

Also, you can enter on goodreads to win an advanced copy of The Disappearing Girl!
