Reviews

"Every library needs Good Enough on its shelves. Lyrical, funny, honest and brave, this is a book that will save lives." --Katherine Applegate, New York Times-bestselling author of Wishtree and Crenshaw

"Petro-Roy (P.S. I Miss You), an eating disorder survivor, offers an intimate and realistic portrayal of Riley's destructive thinking patterns as well as her victories and setbacks. A powerful, well-told, and authentic story." --Publishers Weekly

"[A] supportive, honest, and empowering novel about mental health." --Booklist

"Raw and heartfelt. Good Enough navigates the labyrinth of emotions attached to anorexia nervosa. Written in journal form and based on the author's personal experience, this story will tug on your heartstrings as you root for Riley to find her courage and realize she is the superhero in her own story." --Elly Swartz, author of Give and Take and Finding Perfect

"In Riley, Jen Petro-Roy has created a character so real that when she hurts, we hurt. Luckily, when she heals, we heal, as well." --Jordan Sonnenblick, author of Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie

"Good Enough is a story that had me highlighting line after line so I could go back and read them again. Not just because they were beautifully written and gave me tremendous insight into the mind of a girl fighting anorexia, but because they made me laugh, and they made me cry, and they filled my heart with empathy for anyone fighting this disease. This is an important book I want to shove into the hands of every child who thinks they're not skinny enough, not talented enough, not brave enough, not good enough." --Dusti Bowling, author of Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus and 24 Hours in Nowhere
