Beautiful Me by Natasha Jennings Thursday 20th November at 5.30pm
Talia is 17, weighs 68 pounds and has been admitted to a psychiatric unit. Beautiful Me is Talia’s emotional diary and readers get to know the deeper thoughts of an anorexic teenager including her inner fight with thoughts of suicide, memories of abuse and her relationship with her dysfunctional family. "It is easily read, brutally honest, yet at times humorous,” the author says. “Talia, though having a serious mental illness, is a character that many of us could relate to.” This is Natasha' first book and I highly recommend it - so do come along and support another of our talented local authors. RSVP to the shop.
