Publisher's Summary

Insatiable is an astonishingly moving story of four teenage girls whose shame, fear, and confusion compel them to binge, purge and refuse to eat in misguided attempts to feel safe and in control of their lives.

This incredible, imaginative story, written in episodic format, is based on real case histories and tells a true-to-life story through character-driven vignettes. Insatiable will envelop listeners in the personal and seemingly tangible worlds of each of the main characters.

What makes this novel so forceful and vibrant is the way Eliot weaves her story through dynamics that inform these friendships and the therapy that helps them address their pain and fears.

    "You've seen Dawson's Creek, right?"
    What did you like best about Insatiable? What did you like least?

    Entertaining, but that's just because I will read anything pertaining to ana. It was childish, but I believe meant to be so, good for Jr. High students.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Eve Eliot again?

    No, I don't believe so. Just not for me.


    What didn’t you like about Eliza Foss’s performance?

    It was ok. Not annoying or anything, but her voice sounded like a middle aged woman rather than the pre-teens the book was actually about.


    Do you think Insatiable needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There is a follow-up book. Since it apparently doesn't deal w/ eating disorders I will not be listning to it.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an entertaining listen. Not compelling or even theraputic but I enjoyed it. It is however, TRIGGERING. I think it's meant to do the opposite, deter kids from all types of eating disorders but frequently these things go the other way. I am 36 yrs old, but would not allow my teen to listen to this. Would just give her ideas. It was rather funny (in the way of "The Best Little Girl In the World") how ingenious the therapist was. She managed to instantly cure all who came to see her. Wouldn't be surprised if the author works in that field.
