Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Shani Raviv is a misfit teen whose peer-pressured diet spirals down into full-blown anorexia nervosa―something no one in her early-nineties, local South African community knows anything about.

Fourteen-year-old Shani spends the next six years being “Ana” (as many anorexics call it), on the run from her feelings. She goes from aerobics addict to Israeli soldier to rave bunny to wannabe reborn, using sex, drugs, exercise and, above all, starvation, to numb out everything along the way. But one night, at age twenty, Shani faces the rude awakening that if she doesn’t slow down, break her denial, and seek help, she will starve to death. Three years later, her hardest journey of all begins: the journey to let go of being Ana and learn to love herself.

Being Ana is an exploration into the soul and psyche of a young woman wrestling with anorexia’s demons―one that not only exposes the real horrors of a day in the life of an anorexic girl but also reveals the courage it takes to stop fighting and find healing.
