5.0 out of 5 stars Kudos to Carlson for a job well done July 27 2006
By S. Stevenson - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book May 28 2007
By anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Picture of the Disease May 23 2007
By Bookaholic Extraordinaire - Published on Amazon.com
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.

I have had an eating problem do for a long time and this book helped to establish that I don't need to do this to be perfect, b because I am perfect in God's eyes and that's all that matters.
