    DescriptionGrowing up, Katie Green had a normal and extremely happy childhood. However, as a child, she had an aversion to finishing certain foods (like toast), foods that she would end up hiding behind her bookshelf when she didn't want to eat them. As Katie entered her teenage years, she found herself becoming more averse to eating altogether. Before she knew it, she had become obsessive about consuming very limited amounts of calories and within months, found that she was severely anorexic. In Katie's inspirational graphic memoir "Lighter than My Shadow," Katie takes readers on her painful journey, as she goes from starving herself to binging and purging. Along the way, Katie tries everything to cure herself (including having an extremely manipulative and dangerous relationship with a zealous alternative healer). It is not until she gives in to her passion for drawing (something she'd tried to ignore all her life) that she begins the long process to her recovery.
