Product description

Like most kids, Katie was a picky eater. She'd sit at the table in silent protest, hide uneaten toast in her bedroom, listen to parental threats that she'd have to eat it for breakfast. But in any life a set of circumstance can collide, and normal behavior might soon shade into something sinister, something deadly. Lighter Than My Shadow is a hand-drawn story of struggle and recovery, a trip into the black heart of a taboo illness, an exposure of those who are so weak as to prey on the vulnerable, and an inspiration to anybody who believes in the human power to endure towards happiness.

Review quote

"Even at its most heartbreaking it never feels sombre ... Inspiring, plucky and, in the end, consoling, it's hard to put down." -- Rachel Cooke Observer "A work of true devotion." -- Paul Gravett Independent "This heartbreaking, endearing and painfully honest depiction of a girl fighting against herself to survive makes for a truly amazing story." We Love This Book "[A] searing memoir... Gripping, thanks to its honesty and its disjunction between traumatic subject matter and sometimes childlike artwork, James Smart" Guardian
