Beautiful. Just beautiful. I inhaled this book during the last 24 hours and really loved it. It‘s a story about a woman named Anna who is in a residential program to combat her anorexia. She and her fellow residents have triumphs and setbacks as they bravely face each day with this disease. They support each other. Anna navigates her changing relationship with her husband and family. Zgheib tells Anna‘s story lyrically and authentically. Read it!

This book was raw and honest, though it has many triggers for eating disorders. Anna was a deeply relatable character. While I don‘t have an eating disorder, I related to Anna‘s struggle to lover her body, to feel like she was enough just as she was. The writing is good, propelling the reader through difficult content. A fast, important, book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Netgalley

“He thought suddenly of watermelon. It was hard to come by back in Scotland but even before he'd ever tasted one in the flesh it had reminded him of summer. He knew what watermelon tasted like now; it was one of his favorite things. He could almost feel it in his mouth as he stood there, that cold sweet powerful explosion of almost nothing.”

The Girls at 17 Swann Street is unlike many books.

Anna is seeking treatment for anorexia, and feels she does not belong there. She used to love going on roller coasters, French fries, dancing... and Matthias, her true love which is so important in her recovery.

Matthias, who, never stops visiting her.

LOVED the writing style, including the flashbacks to Anna‘s life and her interactions with the other girls.

Beautiful and heartbreaking.

BookNAround This was a pretty amazing read. 4w
OnlyYoo This sounds so great! The sort of controllingness that‘s insinuated kind of reminds me of Eugenia Cooney‘s situation. 4w
KristenDuck @OnlyYoo definitely consider reading it! 4w

This book is amazing. I seriously could not put it down. The story is heartbreaking and difficult, but the writing is lovely and empathic. The main character is so easy to relate to in her struggle whether you have dealt with an eating disorder or not. I love that this is adult fiction because I don‘t feel like I have seen this topic frequently beyond YA. The writing is truly excellent. I highly recommend this book!

What a wonderful fairytale! Not a whole lot of grounding in real mental illness or therapy, but probably more enjoyable because of that fact! 3.5⭐️ #24in48 book 2, six hours in 🎉🎉🥳

Holy emotional read. This book follows Anna as she seeks treatment for her anorexia. It provides a realistic look inside the struggles associated with eating disorders - for those who are sick and their families as well. This is definitely not easy reading material but my heart broke for these girls and their successes and failures. It also used a short chapter format which made it easy to breeze through. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Dawnrod1970 Loved this book! 1mo
