Publisher's Summary

Fifteen-year-old Katie Roskova tells herself she has a perfect life! She earns all A’s at her private high school. And she’s a figure-skating star with dreams of the Olympics. The only problem is she sometimes has trouble with her jumps. That’s when Mom orders Katie to work harder and use “mind over matter”.

Every day Katie spends long hours practicing at the ice rink, then hurries home to study. Sometimes, she just wants to get away from all the pressure. Then an alarming thing happens - she “spaces out”. When she falls and cuts herself, she discovers a secret way to stop this scary, out-of-control feeling, but her solution is painful and frightening, too!

Steven Levenkron is a best-selling author, pyschotherapist, and foremost authority on eating disorders and other clinical problems of teenage girls. He creates a suspenseful tale of a teenager coping with overwhelming pressures. With sensitivity and gentle insight, The Luckiest Girl in the World will captivate young adults and parents while it dramatically clarifies “cutting” or self mutilation.
