Sad Perfect

"In this heartbreaking and deeply personal novel, Stephanie Elliot elevates the specific to the universal, and chronicles all of our struggles with the demons within." --Julie Buxbaum, New York Times-bestselling author of Tell Me Three Things

"Sad Perfect is the spare, hauntingly told story of a teenage girl and the eating disorder that threatens to consume her. . . . Girls, and boys, will be reading this elegant and sad book for years to come." --Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times-bestselling author of Girl in Pieces

"Sad Perfect is a brilliant and beautiful debut. Pea's story of her struggles with the eating disorder ARFID demands to be heard and understood through the powerful second-person narrative. This book is raw and visceral, yet ringed with the sweet hope of first love and the support of family. I could not put it down." --Marisa Reichardt, author of Underwater

"A raw and visceral exploration of a unique eating disorder. Told in the second person, Sad Perfect is a masterfully crafted novel about the struggle for self-love and the healing power of self-acceptance." --Shannon M. Parker, author of The Girl Who Fell
