Tyranny-Book Review

           Lesley Fairfield
           Toronto: Tundra Books, 200


           Fairfield’s book is a poignant examination of eating
           disorders. The answers to any kind of eating disorder
           aren’t simple, given our media, friends, fashion trends,
           workplace, and personal relationships. But Fairfield’s
           book gives every adolescent girl hope to overcome and
           triumph over any kind of eating disorder.
           This story is about Anna who descends into a cycle
           of misery that seems unending and deep. Whenever she
           tries to resuscitate herself from her dark abyss, her
           personal demon, Tyranny, is there to push her back
           down. Finding a way to defeat Tyranny becomes a
           matter of life and death. And Anna wins!
           The book is must read for any girl who is seeking a
           better understanding of eating disorders and for
           everyone looking for a compelling book of story and
           hope. Everyone can conquer this demon. We just have
           to want to before it is too late.
           Rating: 5 roses
