Kudos to Carlson for a job well done July 27 2006
By S. Stevenson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
FADED DENIM is book number 9 in the TRUE COLORS SERIES by Melody Carlson, and it is definitely high on the best list. Carlson tackles some tough subjects here: namely, eating disorders, and she does it in a very thought-provoking and moving way.

Emily has put on some weight in the last year, and in the meantime her friend Leah has lost some, and is headed on her way to be America's next Top Model. Seriously. And Emily is getting really jealous. Emily's dad keeps commenting on her weight problem, and as she watches Leah slip into a world of glamour and beauty, Emily wants it for herself. First she tries some simple dieting and exercise. But the weight isn't coming off fast enough. Soon Emily turns to much more drastic measures to put off the weight, taking her down a path that could ruin her life, and possibly end it.

FADED DENIM picks up all the pieces and creates a very moving story. There are some beautiful moments near the end that will make the reader really stop and think. And the best part is, Emily's path toward an eating disorder feels completely real. Carlson has captured what it really feels like to struggle with an eating disorder, and she doesn't resolve things easily with ribbon and string. It's a hard journey that will definitely leave a mark on the reader. Highly recommended.

Great book May 28 2007
By anonymous - Published on
Format: Paperback
Im not much of a reader. I usually start a book and get 3-4 chapters in and the put it back on the shelf or it just lays around my room. I work in a christian bookstore and I also deal with an eating disorder. My boss gave me this book to read. I was apprehensive about reading it, but I at least started it to make her happy with no intentions on finishing it.

A week later I had finished it. Melody Carlson really does capture the true feelings of someone with an eating disorder. I'd recommend this book to anyone that suffers or has a loving one or friend that suffers from an eating disorder.

True Picture of the Disease May 23 2007
By Bookaholic Extraordinaire - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm an adult that has dealt with anorexia for most of my adult life. This book was right on with its depiction of the battle that goes on inside someone that is battling anorexia. I saw myself in Emily as she tried to start eating again. It isn't as easy as just taking a bite. There is so much more to it than that, and I think Melody Carlson captured that very well.

Once my daughters hit their teen years, I am going to have them read this book.

Format: Paperback
Emily Foster is a bit overweight, and she is painfully aware of it. Though her mom is seemingly oblivious to her weight problems, her dad teases Emily about her "baby fat," and looks disapprovingly on whatever she chooses eat. To make matters even worse, her best friend is an aspiring model, which only causes Emily to feel more self-conscious. Leah has what Emily considers a perfect body, exactly what Emily wishes she could be - tall and thin. Tired of her insecurity, Emily decides that is it time for a change. Her "swan project," meant to be a way to boost her "ugly duckling" body image, may actually end up causing her more damage than good.

Although Emily's desire to become healthy isn't an entirely bad thing, she unfortunately decides to take drastic measures to achieve her goal of becoming thin. Her so-called "diet" is actually a dangerous mixture of bulimia and anorexia nervosa. She first attempts binge eating, then rids her body of the food by "purging," or forcing herself to throw it all up. After discovering that her bulimia can be hard to hide from others, she decides to barely eat anything while exercising as much as she can. Even though this book focuses specifically on the health consequences of eating disorders, it also explores the dangers of cosmetic surgery. When two of Emily's model friends, Leah and Becca, must struggle with the damage they have caused their bodies, Emily realizes that she must stop before it is too late.

Emily soon discovers that eating disorders are not only physical battles over the body, they are also internal, spiritual battles. She can only conquer it when she realizes that she doesn't need to rely on herself alone, but can trust in God's help, and find her self confidence in Him. When she finally comes clean about her addiction to extreme and harmful dieting, she can truly begin to heal.
