Danah's eating disorder has a personality -- it's a demon she calls Ed, the voice in her head that undermines her self-esteem and her perception of the world. How can she explain that even when she tries to develop healthier eating habits, there is a demon wriggling inside her mind, determining her every step? The eighteen-year-old author of this novel for teens brings her own journal entries to life, revealing the mental anguish of a teen suffering with anorexia and the terrifying grip the disorder holds on her.
After 13 years of anorexia and bulimia, I healed myself through meditation and prayer, and tried to forget my disorder. But when others asked for my help so they too could recover, my compassion and sympathy overruled that decision. "Exposing the Demon" uncovers the internal source of an eating disorder by examining it in a metaphysical light, and instructs the reader to use her emotions, imagination and spirit to regain her health... not for a while, but for good.

Everything looked perfect from the outside: she had accomplished the things that were important to her – achieving honour roll grades, becoming a role model at her dance studio, and being popular in junior high. She excelled at tap dancing and was even allowed to go up on pointe shoes that year in ballet class, quite the feat for someone who never wanted to do pliés and jetés. It was all such a pretty picture for those who believed in her bubbly deception. Behind her smile, though, was a completely different image. For those who are struggling with an eating disorder, the daunting task of recovery can seem out of reach and impossibly hopeless. The high prevalence of eating disorders and low support from society make it, not only frustrating, but life threatening to those trying to recover. But it IS possible to recover. Lori Henry knows that because she was bulimic for six years in high school and, now in her 30s, has been fully recovered for many years. This is a young woman's story of struggle and eventual recovery from bulimia, and how she lives without an eating disorder today.

There is little about Carol Sherman-Jones' life that one could characterise as normal. How many other sixth graders do you know who would hire the playground bully to break her arm just so she could get some attention? How many people do you know who have wrestled a midget in lime Jell-O to earn some rent money? How many people do you know who have purchased a run-down bar for one dollar and then, with no business experience whatsoever, turned it into wildly successful gay bar? Carol Sherman-Jones has done all that and a lot more. With an irrepressibly irreverent wit, she shares all in her autobiography titled My Life as a Gay Man in a Straight Woman's Body. In what she describes as an extremely cathartic experience, Sherman-Jones bares her most painful secrets as well as her most incredible highs.
