At eighteen, Kristen Hall has an imaginary friend—Ana, the personification of her eating disorder, that negative voice inside her head that tells her she isn’t good enough. Rationally, Kristen knows that Ana isn’t good for her, but the thought of letting her go is unimaginable. Yet, in her budding relationship with Alex Taylor—thoughtful, selfless, and charming—Kristen is able to see everything that she could be, including being more in control of the chaos surrounding her; and she knows that to keep one, she has to lose the other.
