  • Introduction: Join us for discussions of books featuring teens and mental health.

Seventeen-year-old Stevie is trapped in her life, and now in an eating-disorder treatment center on the dusty outskirts of the New Mexico desert.  Life in the center is regimented and intrusive, a nightmare come true.  Nurses and therapists watch Stevie at mealtime, accompany her to the bathroom, and challenge her to eat the foods she's worked so hard to avoid.  

 This book discussion is free and no registration is required.  For more information and to get a copy of the novel, please call the Youth Services Department at 310-618-5964.
