Melanie feels she has to be perfect for people to like her. She puts herself on a strict diet, another way ? along with good grades, volunteer work, and never showing her anger ? to be perfect. But the diet takes over her life, and soon Melanie has lost her friends and her ability to concentrate. She finds herself in the hospital, diagnosed with anorexia nervosa.
