This book is about Kessa Dietrich, a young ballerina who becomes anorexic (and bulimic). I don’t want to give too much away because I recommended it to one of my friends (who knows my Tumblr).
Let’s just say the book was not as gruesome with the aspects of anorexia as I thought it could have been. I had anticipated wincing during the descriptions, but it was all explained in a way that I didn’t feel the need. The book takes a more psychological approach in the quest for Kessa to get better. I could not put this book down, and even missed my bus stop on the way to work one morning.
It was interesting to read about the different styles/approaches of the psychologists she saw, and I also was stirred by the family dynamic. Anorexia is a disorder/disease that affects not only the person with it, directly, but also their family even if the sick person cannot see that.
I would definitely recommend this book, and already have.
"Catch of the Day" Campaign Presents Trash Fresh from the Sea
To bring attention to the issue of ocean pollution, the Surfrider Foundation teamed up with advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi LA to create the “Catch of the Day” campaign. Actual trash collected from beaches around the U.S. was re-packaged as food and left on display at farmer’s markets to create a impactful, site-specific message. By addressing consumers at the point of purchase, the “Catch of the Day” reminds seafood buyers that ocean pollution isn’t someone else’s problem; rather, it impacts individuals on a daily basis. Some of the repackaged items include cigarette butts from Venice Beach, California; aerosol cans from South Padre Beach, Texas; and condoms from Newport Beach, California. While environmental campaigns often emphasize shock value above all else, the Surfrider project tempers startling subjects with a restrained presentation and refined target audience.
