First is Best
Choosing a single part of the book that was good was difficult, but it would have to be the Prologue. After reading the book, the part that I can still remember is the very beginning. At first it is a mystery. De Rossi uses very cryptic words and doesn't make anything clear. As you read on you begin to understand that she is referencing her anorexia. "He doesn't wait until I'm awake, he comes into my unconscious to find me. He seizes my logical mind an disables it with fear", she refers to the "voice of anorexia". She uses fantastic description and intense imagery. It is like you are her or you are watching her. The prologue is what stuck with me.
