Reviews of After the Strawberry by Kathryn Pope

Jen Knox reviewed on Sep. 29, 2010

This was an eye-opening and intense introduction into the world of anorexia. Moreover, the book is timely in that it speaks to an audience of men and women who have grown up in the electronic age, when everything about our lives is to be shared and promoted. It seems awkward at first, for the protagonist to be filmed about her battle with an eating disorder, but in being exposed and vulnerable, Lydia learns to reconcile her outlook, learns to look within.
